Man glassed in the face in horror homophobic attack

HORRIFIC footage shows the moment a 23-year-old man had a class smashed in his face for walking into a pub holding hands with his boyfriend.

Anjungi Lam, 35, was caught on CCTV running up and glassing the young man in a homophobic attack in Kentish Drovers pub in South London.

The victim, 23, suffered cuts to his nose, lip and neck, a chipped tooth and damage to his cornea.

Flying glass also went in his 20-year-old boyfriend's eye.

Lam admitted to causing grievous bodily harm with intent and was jailed for two years at Inner London crown court.

Investigating officer Police Constable Lance Sharrock said: "This was an entirely unprovoked incident.

"Lam did not know the victim or his partner, they had not spoken nor had any disagreement to provoke such a violent attack."
