London may be on lockdown, but that hasn’t prevented its most colorful residents from doing what they do best.
Detectives are releasing an image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with an unprovoked attack on a woman in an east London park.
Police were called at 15:48hrs on Saturday, 4 April to reports of an injured woman at London Fields, Hackney, at the tennis courts’ entrance in Richmond Road, near the junction with Navarino Road.
Police and the London Ambulance Service [LAS] attended and found a woman in her 40s suffering from stab injuries to her arm and back.
The victim was walking alone when an unknown man ran up to her and stabbed her in an unprovoked attack. The suspect then ran off down Navarino Road.
Officers, including the Met’s Dog Support Unit, attended and searched the area but there was no trace of the suspect.
The suspect is described as a black man, about 5ft 8ins tall, of medium build. He was wearing a red beanie hat, a mustard coloured jumper and grey trousers.
Detectives from Central East CID are investigating and are appealing for witnesses and information.
