A former The Apprentice star has lost nearly all of the sight in one of her eyes after a vicious attack.
Elle Stevenson – who appeared in the 2015 series of the show – had her phone stolen in a brutal robbery at Charing Cross station in London on December 16.
The 25-year-old was left with severe injuries including broken cheekbones, which will require plastic surgery.
She has also lost most of the sight in her left eye.
Shocking images taken of the reality TV star in hospital show the horrific extent of her injuries.
Ms Stevenson – who leaves near Windsor, Berkshire – has directed police to CCTV footage of the incident.
She claimed officers told her they would not be able to investigate the incident further.
Police reportedly advised Ms Stevenson they did not have the resources to trawl through an hour’s video footage – cops have insisted they will look through the footage however, if they are given the exact time the robbery took place.
The former Apprentice hopeful – who lasted until week six in the competition – told The Sun: “It is horrific. If these men can beat a woman like this – innocent girls on a night out – and get away with it.
“They battered me. One man went behind me and pushed me and the next thing I knew my face went forward and was met with two punches. I was smacked squarely in the face – I feel like they tee’d me up.
“My memory has been affected and I am getting confused which has left me feeling really vulnerable. My dad is having to drive me everywhere and I feel like a 12-year-old.”
The Met said in a statement: “Police in Westminster are investigating the theft of a mobile phone and a subsequent assault in the early hours of Sunday, 16 December.”
“The victim was taken to a central London hospital for treatment to facial injuries before being discharged.
“After visiting the victim in hospital, officers conducted an examination of the scene. No forensic evidence was identified, and, following further enquiries, it was established that CCTV cameras in nearby business premises did not cover the area where the offences took place.
“The victim was informed of this lack of available evidence.
“There has been no arrest.”
