Woman suffers cracked skull after Sidcup assault: Police release CCTV

Police have released CCTV this morning in the hunt for the perpetrator of an assault in Sidcup which left a 19 year old woman with a cracked skull.

It’s very hard to see the man clearly in this video but someone may recognise the individual. The incident occurred back in May.

The town has been in the news quite a bit over the  past week with an appeal to find a man who spat at a bus driver, attacked an elderly man and stole a phone from an 80 year old woman.

There was also a 16 year old attacked with a knife near Morrisons in recent days.

Today’s appeal from the police states:

“On Thursday, 21 May at 05:38hrs, police were called to an address in Dartford to a report of an assault that took place the previous evening.

The victim, a 19-year-old woman, was taken to hospital by the London Ambulance Service where they confirmed she had suffered from a broken collar bone and a cracked skull.

The incident took place on Wednesday, 20 May between 20:40hrs and 21:03hrs on North Cray Road, Sidcup.

No arrests have been made.

The man is described as white, tanned, aged in his early 30s, around 6ft 2ins tall, of a large build and with dark brown hair. He has several tattoos on his upper body and was wearing black shorts.

Detective Constable James Steel, from the Met’s South East BCU, said: “We would like to identify and speak to a man and his two associates who are believed to be involved in an assault. The victim was attacked near to the White Cross Pub. I would urge anyone with information to contact police.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or tweet @metcc quoting the image reference number 046142.
