Manhunt for thug who attacked man in his 60s at shop in ‘racially motivated’ assault – as police release CCTV image


A CCTV image has been released of a man suspected of attacking a 60-year-old in a ‘racially motivated’ assault.

How it Happened

The Metropolitan Police have released the image as a part of a manhunt for a suspect who knocked a man in his 60s to the ground and assaulted him on November 3 2024 at around 9.50pm. 

The incident occurred at Garden’s Food and Wine in Manchester Road on the Isle of Dogs. The victim was taken to hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.

Police say they are treating the attack as racially motivated and, after launching an investigation, the Met recovered the CCTV from the shop with the aim of hopefully naming the thug who carried out the attack.

‘We will not tolerate this kind of behaviour and I’d ask anyone who recognises the man in the image to speak to us immediately.’   

Anyone who can help the investigation is asked to call 101 quoting CAD 5159/04Nov.
