Lewisham Metropolitan Police have released a picture of a man who they think is connected to a violent robbery that took place in December 2022.

On the morning of December 10, the victim got off a bus in Rushey Green, when an unknown man hit him over the head repeatedly with a metal pole. The victim, in their early 20s, had his bag stolen and the suspect walked away and got on a bus right after the attack.  

The victim was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Upon arriving at the hospital, a CT scan showed that he was suffering from bleeding in the brain.  

Detectives have now released a picture they think has a connection to the robbery. 

Detective Sergeant Laura Warden said: “This was an extremely violent robbery, which left the victim fighting for his life. We are determined to bring the person responsible for this heinous crime to justice.” 

Anyone who recognizes this man is asked to contact the police on 101, or tweet @MetCC quoting reference CAD 1558/10Dec22
