A MAN had his ear bitten off and was left with potentially life-changing injuries after a brawl following England's Euro 2020 defeat.
Police were patrolling the streets of Epsom, south London at around 11.30pm when they witnessed a fight on Epsom High Street.
The victim and the suspect had been at separate venues to watch the game.
The suspect then seriously assaulted the victim, biting his ear and partially tearing it off.
The victim was taken to hospital with potentially life-changing injuries.
The suspect has been described to be of medium build with brown hair.
A 33 year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent.
He has since been released on conditional bail whilst enquiries continue.
Detective Constable Elliott Abdo said “Due to the fact this happened following the football match, we expect that there will be witnesses to this assault who are yet to come forward.
“Many witnesses were standing in sheltered areas of the high street to avoid the rain, so we are appealing to these people who witnessed the assault to get in touch.
“We are also appealing to people in cars including taxi drivers who may have any dashcam footage from the area around that time to contact us.”
