CCTV footage has been released today (Thursday)

Officers are appealing for help after a parking row turned violent in Bexleyheath.

Police believe the victim, a 36-year-old man, was attacked after asking two men to move their car from the Esso garage in Broadway, Bexleyheath.

The assault, which happened on Wednesday October 5, fractured the victim’s jaw and cut his elbow.

A spokesperson from the force said: “CCTV footage from the petrol station caught two men parking their car on the forecourt before walking over to a nearby restaurant.

“When the victim asked them to move the car, one of the men hit him in the face causing him to fall to the ground.”

Footage from the incident has been released today, Thursday, of a man officers would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

The suspect is described as a large white man in his early 30s with short brown hair, beard and wearing black shorts and a dark t-shirt with a white square logo.

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

No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
