The manager of Coffee Lounge in Woolwich has tweeted that he was assaulted at 8:30 this morning and was punched in the face near the shop.
Last week he reveled numerous issues in the area and as a result was hiring three security officers.

In tweets last week the problems with anti social behaviour were said to be “terrorism our customers and ruining our business” and criticised authorities for their response.
Since then council and police have visited to talk of concerns. Many people came out to say they feel intimidated in the area.
It’s similar to the situation at Wilton Road in Abbey Wood. Many have highlighted issues with people congregating around bookies to the authorities, and then this week a stabbing occurred when a van is believed to have pulled up, two people jumped out and attacked a group around a betting shop.
If you saw anything you can call 101.
