A violent assault at Chiswick Station has resulted in the death of a 38-year-old man, leaving the police on a search for three unidentified men.
The victim sustained serious injuries after being thrown against a concrete wall during a verbal altercation, causing him to lose consciousness.
Despite receiving medical attention, including treatment for a brain bleed and a fractured skull, the man tragically passed away in January, three months after the attack occurred.
The Attack and Immediate Aftermath:
On October 14, at approximately 11:50 PM, the victim was violently thrown against a concrete wall, leading to a severe head injury that rendered him unconscious.
Emergency services were called, and the man was swiftly transported to the hospital for treatment.
Medical examinations revealed a brain bleed and a fractured skull as a result of the assault.
Investigation and Suspects:
The assault was triggered by a verbal altercation between the victim and three unidentified men, as reported by the British Transport Police.
After the attack, the suspects fled the scene and were observed boarding a bus headed towards Turnham Green.
In an effort to progress the investigation, authorities have released images of the three men, appealing to the public for any information that could assist in identifying them.
The Victim’s Demise:
Regrettably, the victim’s health deteriorated over time.
In December, he experienced a cardiac arrest, and despite medical efforts, he succumbed to his injuries in January of the following year.
While the exact cause of death is yet to be determined pending further pathologist results, the police are currently not treating the case as a murder investigation.
Appeal for Assistance:
Detectives involved in the case are urging anyone who may recognize the three men in the released images or have any information related to the incident to come forward.
The public can contact the British Transport Police by either texting 61016 or calling 0800 555 111, quoting reference 12 of 14/10/22.
Alternatively, individuals can choose to provide information anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers at 0800 555 111.
This tragic incident highlights the severe consequences of violent assaults, with the victim losing his life months after the initial attack.
The police investigation’s release of the suspects’ images demonstrates their commitment to identifying and apprehending those responsible for the assault.
The request for public assistance underscores the crucial role that community cooperation plays in solving such cases.
The subsequent pathologist results will likely provide valuable insights into the victim’s cause of death, potentially leading to further developments in the investigation.
