Police are on the hunt for two women after a wine bottle was smashed over another woman’s head on the London Underground.
At around 12:30 am on Thursday, June 17 the victim, who was travelling alone on the Northern Line on the Tube, was sitting opposite the pair who accused her of staring at them before they attacked her.
The woman was left shaken after the attack and suffered a deep cut to the side of her forehead.
