I had the misfortune of being violently assaulted at the Friday Hyde Park gig. I would really appreciate anyone who witnessed the attack and is prepared to make a statement to the Police getting in contact with me, or with the MET if they do not want to do so anonymously.
I was the 5'8" guy wearing a white baseball top with blue sleeves. I have a full beard and shortish dark hair. I was attacked by a short guy with dark hair and a white top.
If you witnessed it you'll remember it because he came out of nowhere, to the surprise of everyone around, and started punching me in the head.
We were standing to the centre-back of the crowd, just behind and to the left (looking at the stage) of the centre screen. We were perhaps 15 meters in front of the gravel path running off to the left of the stage.
Thank-you to the guys behind me who help me up and offered to "help" should the guy return.
I would love for the police to catch this guy. I know who he is and the police are already involved, I just need impartial witnesses to make a statement.
This stupid effin idiot ruined the only Blur gig I had been able to attend, despite being a fan since year dot. In particular my girlfriend, who was also injured by this fool and has torn the ligaments in her foot, had been dreaming of this reunion gig since she was a teenager.
Thanks in advance to anyone who has the courage to step forward. I hope you guys enjoyed the gig. Bloody good, wasn't it?
