Traffic warden assaulted in Hatfields: police appeal

On Sunday 5 July at 2.46pm a traffic warden issued a parking ticket to the driver of a white car parked in Hatfields on the Southwark/Lambeth border.

The passenger got out of the car and started to shout at the male traffic warden.

The passenger then grabbed the warden’s mobile data terminal out of his hands and threw it onto the floor kicking it across the road, scratching the terminal screen. He then assaulted the traffic warden.

The victim did not require medical attention. The assault was captured on the traffic warden’s body worn camera.

The suspect is described as a tall, black man wearing a white T-shirt.

Anyone who can identify the man shown in the CCTV footage or who has information relating to the incident is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference 185776 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
