Detectives wish to speak with a motorist who intervened in the assault
A man was left with a broken wrist after he was robbed by a group of youths in Bromley.
The 29-year-old victim was walking along Plaistow Lane at around 4pm on Saturday, November 26, when four youths approached him from behind, assaulting him and knocking him to the ground.
As the victim lay on the ground they continued to assault him, before stealing £30.
A number of passing vehicles hooted their horns and one motorist stopped and intervened, causing the suspects to flee the scene.
The victim required hospital treatment for his injuries, which included a wrist broken in three places.
One of the suspects is described as a white man, medium to large build, aged in his mid-20s and wearing a long black parka coat, white trainers, and a scarf over the bottom half of his face. He had a star and water drop tattoo under his left eye.
A second suspect is described as a black man, wearing a jacket with a fur hood pulled up over his head.
Detectives are keen to speak with the motorist who intervened in the assault.
Additionally, anyone with any information is asked to contact Bromley Police’s CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
