A teenager was beaten around the head with bricks and left unconscious in a Tottenham street by a group of seven Congolese men on Friday night.
Police found the 19-year-old man, who is also Congolese, unconscious in Greenfield Road, South Tottenham, at about 7.50pm.
It is believed the victim was set upon by the group, aged in their 20s to 30s, near to West Green Road and Greenfield Road.
The group repeatedly punched him and hit him in the head with bricks.
One passer-by described seeing blood stains on the road and on parked cars.
