LBC Radio host 'is battered by signet ring-wearing racist who called him a f****** P*** in attack outside a London theatre'

A radio host says he will be 'scarred for life' after he was battered in the face by a man during a racist attack. 
Maajid Nawaz, a presenter on LBC and an anti-extremism campaigner, says a white man struck him from behind outside the Soho Theatre in London.
The host says the attacker hit him in the face as he bent down to pick up his phone and called him a 'f***ing P***' before running away.
In a series of tweets, Mr Nawaz, 41, posted a photo of a bloodied cut to his forehead and said the man racially abused him and then hit him with 'a signet ring'.

The attacker then ran away 'like a coward' and 'took nothing. He was just a racist,' Mr Nawaz said. 
The Metropolitan Police said they were called to a report of a racially aggravated assault in Dean Street at 7.10pm on Monday.
The suspect had fled the scene before officers arrived, no arrests have been made and an investigation has been launched, police said.

Mr Nazaz said: 'My forehead will probably be scarred for life. But we will find you, you racist coward, and you will face British justice.'
In one tweet he said there were witnesses who heard the racial abuse, and they gave statements to the police - who 'have his face of CCTV'.
Mr Nawaz is the founder of the Quilliam Foundation, a counter-extremism organisation and presents a weekend lunchtime show on LBC radio.
He asked not to be contacted, but thanked those who had offered their support.
