NHS worker has metal plates inserted in face after being punched for challenging man without face mask on Tube

According to the Evening Standard paper this happened as he was about to get off the train, after the argument broke out he was punched by a man (pictured above) 3-4 times to the side of his head.

Injuries were a chipped jaw and 3 breaks to his eye socket, ouch!

Now for me it is correct for people to let others know what the rules are but sometimes you don’t know who you end up coming across and I suspect the NHS worker thought nothing of it since he didn’t look ‘tough’.

An NHS worker has had metal plates inserted in his face after he was punched in the head and pushed off a Tube train for confronting a man refusing to wear face mask.

The worker was on the Circle Line and preparing to get off the train at High Street Kensington when he approached the man and challenged him about not wearing a mask.

An argument broke out, and the victim was punched by a man three to four times to the side of his head.

He was then pushed off the train and onto the platform, while the man continued to punch him.

Sustaining a chipped jaw and three breaks to his eye socket, the victim now needs permanent metal plates in his face.

Police put out an image on Monday’s Crimewatch Live of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the attack.

He is described as a white man in his 20s with blonde hair that was short at the sides and longer on top, clean-shaven, and wearing a navy-blue suit and light blue shirt. He was carrying a large green umbrella and grey rucksack with a blue Nike logo.
