Police are appealing for help from the community in identifying a suspect who may have been concerned in two incidents in Havering. The first a commercial robbery and the second a commercial burglary.
The first incident took place on 30 October 2014 at the MOT Centre, Mawney Road, Romford. The 56-year-old male victim was attacked at 1820hrs by two suspects, one of whom was armed with a baseball bat.
During this attack the victim sustained serious head injuries and was taken to an east London hospital for treatment.
Nothing was stolen during this incident.
The second incident took place the following day on 31 October 2014 at the premises next door to the first incident.
CCTV equipment was taken from the venue that included footage of the suspects robbing the MOT centre and attacking a 56-year-old man on the previous day.
Officers are keen to identify and speak with the man shown in the image who is wanted for questioning by police in connection with this investigation.
Detective Constable Tara Wilson investigating said; “The victim of this pre-planned attack continues to receive treatment and is not yet fully recovered from his injuries and the effects of becoming a victim of violent crime.
“Assisting police in identifying this man could help remove a dangerous criminal from your area or may help eliminate someone from police enquiries.”
Anyone who knows the identity of this person should contact Detective Constable Tara Wilson of Havering CID by dialing 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
