A man has been treated in hospital after being attacked twice by the same man while taking money out of an ATM.

Police were called at around 1am on Friday, January 14 to a South London hospital where a 51-year-old man was being treated for a number of injuries, including cuts.

Officers established that the man had been assaulted outside the Halifax on Rushey Green, Lewisham around 30 minutes earlier.

The victim told officers that he had been punched by the suspect – who was known to him – while withdrawing money from a cash machine.

The suspect left but returned a short time later carrying a bladed item which he used in a second attack on the victim.

An investigation was launched and a number of enquiries were carried out to locate the suspect.

Later that afternoon, a 42-year-old man went to a South London police station and was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and robbery. He was subsequently bailed pending further enquiries.

Detective Constable Alan Jones, from the South East BCU, which covers Lewisham, said: “This was an unprovoked attack on a man in the street.

“Whilst we have made an arrest, I still need to speak with anyone who saw the assault.

“The victim has told us that there were other people in the area at the time, and I need them to come forward and tell me what they saw.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police via 101 quoting reference CAD 254/14Jan. To remain anonymous, contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
