Police are appealing for information to trace a man who is wanted in connection with a violent assault in Bow. 

He is Anton Ward, 28, and is believed to live in the Hammersmith area.

The incident happened on 9 May, when Ward had met a man through a gay dating app and arranged to visit his address in Bow.

After they met, Ward assaulted the victim - punching him in the face and head - before leaving the flat.

The victim was not seriously injured.
