Detectives are trying to trace a van driver who asked paramedics to help an injured man in the back of his van – before driving off.
On Sunday, July 1, at around 12.45, paramedics dealing with a separate incident on Peckham Hill Street were stopped by a driver, who alerted them to a man in the back of his van who was injured.
As the paramedics helped take him out and provided treatment to a large open leg wound, described as ‘consistent with being stabbed’, the van driver drove off without giving his details.
Police now want to trace him, and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
The driver is described as being a white, slim man, around five-feet-seven, with dark hair and facial stubble.
He is believed to be in his early 40s and has a London accent and scar on the left side of his face.
On the day, he was wearing a grey, zipped hooded sweater with a white T-shirt underneath.
The injured man has since been discharged from hospital.
Anyone with any information or who fits this description is asked to contact Southwark CID on 101 and quote CAD 4031/01JUL, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
