A milkman was assaulted while making his deliveries in Beckenham on Tuesday, April 10.

Police and the London Ambulance Service were called to Kings Hall Road at 7.39am and found a man with facial injuries. He was taken to hospital.

Police have confirmed that his injuries are non-life threatening.

He told officers he was delivering milk when he heard a noise by his offside mirror.

He looked out of his window and saw a motorbike with two men, who he believes may have collided with the mirror.

Police say the milkman parked his van and walked over to the men to ensure they were OK but one punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground.

The man then hit him twice more in the face.

The milkman ran away and flagged down a dog walker who called the police.

His attacker is described as white, in his mid to late 20s, about 6ft, wearing a blue motorbike helmet and a black motorbike suit.

A spokeswoman from the company the man works for, Milk and More, said in a statement: “Milk & More can confirm that one of its milkmen, operating out of the company’s Purley fulfilment centre, was assaulted while out on his round in Beckenham on Tuesday April 10.

“The safety of its employees is of paramount importance to Milk & More and the company is liaising closely with the police and assisting them with their enquiries, as well as offering the milkman the support he needs.

“Thankfully the milkman has recovered well from his injuries and is now back at work.”

No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference number 1351/10APR or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
