On 13th November a girl was walking along a street in Plaistow, east London, when a man ran up behind her and punched her in the head. He then turned around and left the way he came. With that single stroke she was felled like a tree. Her attacker left her face down on the pavement with broken teeth.
The police made CCTV footage available in their search for the thug that attacked this girl.
On Friday Michael Ayoade, 34, appeared at Thames Magistrates’ Court where he plead guilty to assault and occasioning actual bodily harm.
This cowardly unprovoked act must be punished with the maximum sentence that the law allows.
