After a non-fatal stabbing on Denmark Hill in July, police have now released an image of a man they want to speak to who ‘may be connected to the incident’.
The attack happened at five to midnight on Sunday, July 15, as the 30-year old male victim and his friend left a pub on Denmark Hill.
According to the Met, the victim was in his car and had just spoken to a woman and got her number when the attacker approached.
The suspect asked the victim where he was from before turning to walk away, but then opened the driver’s door and stabbed him in the left forearm before aiming for his chest.
The victim managed to fend off the suspect by kicking him away but was left with a ‘small wound’ to the chest before being taken to hospital by his friends.
Detective Constable Colin Scott, from Southwark CID, said: “We would like to identify the individual in this picture and speak to him about the attack that took place on Sunday, 15 July.
“It is not known at this stage if he is the suspect or a significant witness, however it’s very important that we speak to him as soon as possible.”
