Detectives in Islington are appealing for help and information after a
woman sustained serious injuries during an unprovoked assault in Seven
Sisters Road, N4, on Friday, 15 February.

The pregnant victim, aged in her 30s, was assaulted by a man underneath
the bridge by Finsbury Park tube station at approximately 18:30hrs.

She sustained a facial injury believed to have been caused by a knife
and a shoulder injury. She was taken to hospital and later released with
non-life-threatening or life-changing injuries.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Louise Elliott, said: “This
was an horrific, unprovoked attack on a vulnerable and heavily pregnant
woman. This incident has understandably left her severely traumatised.

“I appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and remembers seeing
anything that may help the investigation, to call police in confidence
on 020 7421 0297 or if you prefer you can call Crimestoppers anonymously
on 0800 555 111. ”

A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with this incident. He
has been bailed to return to police on 26 February 2013.
