Police are investigating after a man’s nose was broken in a homophobic attack on Clapham Common.

The 42-year-old victim was at the popular south London cruising spot on Sunday April 3rd shortly before midnight when he was approached by three men who attacked him.

He was left with a broken nose and other head injuries.

The men were described as black, aged between 18 and 21, all about 5ft 7ins tall and wearing hooded tops and jeans.

Police say the attack is an isolated incident but are urging members of the public to be vigilant. They are asking anyone who may have seen the attack or suspects to come forward.

Last August, officers visited the common to warn gay cruisers that they may be at risk of attack.

Anyone with information about the assault can call Wandsworth Community Safety Unit on 020 8247 8482 or Crimestoppers (anonymously) on 0800 555 111.
