Police are appealing for witnesses

Police in Bexley are appealing for information after a strange assault on a Good Samaritan in Abbey Wood.

The man, who is in his 40s, had been flagged down by a woman who seemed distressed as he drove along Harrow Manor Way on Friday, July 17 at about 5am.

She said she had been locked out of her home for two hours and needed help as she was very tired and heavily pregnant.

He told her she could use his phone to call whomever she needed to contact and that he was happy to give her a lift.

The woman called a man named Frank from his mobile and then asked the man to drive her to Lensbury Way.

As soon as the car stopped, she grabbed his mobile and ran out of the car and into a housing estate.

She reappeared five minutes later and, when the man asked for his mobile phone back, insisted she hadn’t taken it.

She then started to scream and claim that the man had attacked her.

He went to look for a public phone to call 999, but three men appeared, said their sister had been assaulted, and attacked him, punching him several times and leaving him bleeding.

The woman is white, about 5ft 9 and of large build. She was wearing a white linen top and trousers.

The three men are in their 20s; two are white and one is black.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
