Two people charged following east London assault

Police have seized a set of brass knuckles and a knife following a robbery in east London.

Around 1:45 a.m. on Friday, police say a man walked by two people he didn't know, a man and a woman, and the man asked him for money.

According to police, the victim refused and continued walking — the two people followed the victim and assaulted him multiple times.

A witness saw the altercation and called police.

A 27-year-old man from London is charged with robbery and aggravated assault and a 29-year-old woman has been charged with fail to comply with release order and assault.
