- £20,000 reward over fatal attack on Desmond O’Beirne filmed running away in Trafalgar Square
Police are offering £20,000 to anyone who can help them track down two men who attacked a man in Trafalgar Square leading to his death.
Desmond O’Beirne was filmed running away from his attackers near the National Gallery on Saturday June 3 last year before they floor him with a single punch.
He never regained consciousness and died on December 20 with a post-mortem finding that he died from his head injury.
Police are now renewing the appeal following the 12.25am attack last summer to find the attackers.
The first suspect who punched Mr O’Beirne had a hipster appearance with a top knot, full beard, red t-shirt, dark trousers and light coloured shoes.
His accomplice, who kicked their victim as he lay unconscious, was wearing a black jacket with a white emblem on right shoulder and white writing with a picture on the rear. He was also wearing a white top under the jacket, dark trousers and dark shoes with white soles.
DCI Noel McHugh said: ‘Someone might see this video and remember that they witnessed this incident; you will see a female who is clearly shocked by what has happened and holds her hands up to her face.
‘You may have been part of the group and did not realise how seriously Desmond was hurt and that he has now died. That may pray on your mind.
‘I’m asking anyone who took any footage or selfies around that time in to contact us; take a look through your photos and see if you have something that can help us.’
Desmond’s sister; Vivienne Folan said: ‘My brother Desmond was hard working and larger than life. He was on a night out in Trafalgar Square when he was brutally and viciously attacked by two cowards who then calmly walked away and left him for dead.
‘As a direct result of this attack he suffered a traumatic brain injury and was left in a vegetative state. Desmond’s life was ended far too soon and our family is left devastated by his loss.
‘Unfortunately for Desmond, his attack happened less than 24 hours before the London Bridge/Borough Market terrorist attacks and I feel that possible witnesses may have focused their attentions on those events.
‘I am appealing to members of the public who may have been in the Trafalgar Square area on the night and witnessed this assault to come forward to the police.
‘I am trying to get justice for Desmond, his two attackers were very distinctive and part of a larger group. I hope that witnesses and those from that group who did not know how serious the attack was will now come forward.’
