Police from Lewisham have released CCTV images of a woman they want to trace in connection with an attempted robbery in February that left the victim with a fractured cheekbone.

On Monday, 10 February at approximately 19:30 the victim, a 25-year-old woman had caught the 136 bus outside Lewisham Train Station.

When she sat down on the bus she was joined by the suspect who sat down beside her.

The victim took out her mobile phone before getting off the bus at Bromley Road, SE6 at approx 20:00.

As she alighted from the bus, she was followed by the suspect as she walked along Whitefoot Lane.

The suspect approached her and asked for the time, the victim gave the suspect the time on her watch but was then told to provide the time on her mobile phone.

The victim refused and began to walk quickly along Whitefoot Lane before the suspect caught up with her pushing her to the ground and stamping on her face.

The victim sustained a fractured cheekbone along with various bumps and bruises.

The suspect fled the scene, getting on a bus nearby.

Detective Constable Andy Trevett, from the Serious Acquisitive Crime Unit, said: "This was a very nasty assault that occurred at night whilst the victim was on her way home. We are very keen to trace this woman and try and prevent another person from being subjected to such a violent attack."

Anyone with information should contact the Serious Acquisitive Crime Unit at Lewisham Police Station on 0208 284 8472/8413; alternatively please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
