Police have released CCTV images of three men they would like to speak to in connection with a serious assault near Horley train station earlier this month.

A 20-year-old man was left with a broken jaw and pelvis following the assault around 7.15pm on 9 February.

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.
