The victim was travelling with three friends from East Croydon on their way back from Crystal Palace’s match with West Ham, when they became involved in a disagreement with a group of around 12 other men.

One of the suspects punched the victim’s friend outside Horley train station.

The victim was also punched and kneed by two men.

A third suspect then punched the victim in the face, resulting in the broken jaw.

The suspects are described as follows:

Male, white, in his 20s, slim build, wearing a red t-shirt

Male, white, in his late 20s-early 30s, around 5ft 8, bald, wearing a grey Crystal Palace beanie

Male, white, early to mid 40s, bald.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Richard Stoneham said: “I’m hoping that someone recognises these three men as we would like to speak to them in relation to our ongoing investigation.

“The incident quickly escalated from a disagreement to the victim being punched in the face and left with serious injuries. We are appealing to anyone who has any information about it to come forward.”
