Sergeant Liam Holbrook of the South London policing team said: “This was an awful attack on two men who were enjoying a night out.
“It was lucky they were not seriously injured.
“We are aware of a video posted on social media which appears to show the attack and this is being reviewed as part of our investigation.
“I would urge anyone with information to contact us immediately.
“I would also like to reassure the community that this appears to have been an isolated incident and there is nothing to suggest a wider risk of further violence in the area.”
Anyone who can help the investigation is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 604/23Oct.
