London man who launched bottle attack gets mugshot released

This is the face of a clubber who picked a glass bottle from a nightclub bin then used it to hit a man in Hythe Bridge Street.

Mustafa Adan, 23, was subject to a suspended sentence order at the time – imposed by a judge in London in 2020 after he was caught with two swords.

‘Activating’ 10 months of the year-long suspended sentence and imposing a further eight months on top for bottle possession outside The Bridge nightclub in Oxford, Judge Maria Lamb last week noted that Adan had previously been sent on a ‘safer streets’ probation programme.

“Sadly, the streets were not safe from you on the night in question, February 20 of this year,” she added.

Thames Valley Police has now released Adan’s mugshot. The Crown Prosecution Service has also released CCTV showing Adan fishing a bottle from a bin in Hythe Bridge Street before joining his friends in running after a member of an opposing group.
