Police have released CCTV footage after a shop worker was assaulted in Penge.

Officers were called to the Supersaver shop in High Street, Penge, on Monday, September 12, after a 32-year-old man was attacked and received a cut to his head.

The male suspect asked the shop assistant to top up his Oyster card, but when the sales assistant explained that the machine was not working, the suspect became angry, damaging the till area and throwing items onto the street.

The sales assistant locked himself in the store and called police.

London Ambulance service treated the man at the scene, but he did not require hospital treatment.

The suspect is described as a white, with short, dark hair. He was wearing a black sweatshirt with a large, white logo on the back.

PC Melanie Bolt, from Bromley CID, said: “We are keen to identify the man shown in the CCTV footage so we can speak to him about the incident. Do you recognise him? We would also urge anyone who witnessed the incident to contact us.”

Anyone with information has been urged to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
