Pensioner in Penge, left unconscious and with serious injuries

Police are appealing for the public’s help to locate a man who brutally attacked a pensioner in Penge, leaving him unconscious and with serious injuries.

On Sunday, 21 April, at about 7.50pm, the 80-year-old victim and his wife were walking along Parish Lane in Penge, when a silver car abruptly stopped as they were crossing the road, almost hitting them.

The driver of the car and the victim then had a verbal altercation before the victim walked away. The suspect pulled over, got out of the vehicle and chased the victim before shoving him in the back. The victim collided with a brick wall as he fell, causing multiple injuries.

The suspect quickly got back into his car and drove away from the scene.
