The incident occurred on Friday night as Tommy returned from his local pub in Hackney, East London with his son.

Tommy told The Sun: “I saw them as I was coming home and I said, that’s bang out of order. My neighbour’s kids play in that garden.

“They came out into the street at me aggressively. I felt threatened and there was an altercation.

“Afterwards one of the guys was bleeding a bit so I got him a plaster.

“I thought that was the end of it but 20 minutes later I had the police here. I thought it was a joke.”

A police spokesman said: “Officers attended and found a man in his 30s suffering from an ear injury following an altercation with two men.

“He was taken to hospital for a check-up but was not seriously injured.

“One man aged in his 50s was later arrested on suspicion of ABH and taken to a local police station for questioning.

“He has since been bailed to a date in mid-March. The investigation continues.”
