Police have released an image of a wanted man after an 89-year-old man was left unable to walk after an assault in Lambeth.

On June 24, around 3pm, the elderly man was approached by a man in Frazier Street, Lambeth.

Met Police said the man, pictured above, shouted abuse at the victim, before pushing him to the ground.

He was taken to hospital where he was treated for a broken hip. He has since been discharged but is unable to walk unaided.

Detective Constable Tristan Jones said: “This was a shocking attack on a vulnerable man that has left him unable to walk.

“It happened in a busy area in the middle of the afternoon and I’m confident somebody will be able to help us track down the man responsible.”
