Police are appealing for witnesses after a milkman was assaulted by a motorbike rider in Kings Hall Road this morning (April 10).

Police were called at 7.39am following reports of an assault. Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended and found a man with facial injuries who was subsequently taken to a south London hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The victim was at work delivering milk when he pulled over in Kings Hall Road to make a delivery nearby. As he indicated to pull over, he heard a noise to his offside mirror, looked out his window and saw a motorbike with two males. He believed they may have collided with his mirror.

The milkman parked his van and walked over to the two males to ensure they were okay. The motorbike was next to them on the floor.

One of the males then punched the victim in the face, causing him to fall to the ground. The suspect then hit the victim twice more in the face.

The victim managed to run away and flagged down a dog walker who called the police.

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

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.
