Detectives investigating an assault on a woman in Clapham High Street on New Year’s Day, have arrested and charged a man.
The 23-year-old Nigerian suspect identified as Andrew Akingbaje, was charged with assault by beating against two other women during the same incident.
The young man previously claimed to have spent two years in the Tottenham Hotspurs youth setup, although the club has no record of him.
He pleaded not guilty to all charges.
The victim, Krystal Mission, 21, was repeatedly punched in the head outside Lotus nightclub, in Clapham, south London, in the early hours of New Year’s Day.
Akingbaje, who wore a grey tracksuit at Camberwell Magistrates’ Court, in London, was released on conditional bail until January 31, when he will next appear.
Magistrate David Armitage said: “You have pleaded not guilty to this matter, the bench have declined jurisdiction. “You are on conditional bail and must live at the address you gave us with an 8pm to 6am curfew.”
Footage of the attack appears to show a male in a blue T-shirt repeatedly punching Ms Mission in the head.
