Seperate attacks on women in Stamford Hill, Finsbury Park and Crouch End

Ferme Park Road

UPDATE: See photos of suspect below


Some rather disturbing news about a young woman being grabbed as she walked along Oldhill Street N16.

According to the twitter message posted by a friend of a friend:

Friend’s female colleague was bundled into a grey van late thurs night on Oldhill Street N16 but managed to escape.

I have since tried to reach the friend who passed on the info, but haven’t heard back. If anything the message was deleted a few minutes ago. It can only be because the “victim” lied or doesn’t want the incident out in the public domain.

If you are not familiar with that particular street, it is more Stamford Hill than Stoke Newington and is mainly made up of an assortment of Kosher shops and Hasidic Jewish businesses and residences. There is also a GP centre that opens 7 days a week.

What I can confirm is that two women in N4 were jabbed with a hypodermic needle last week.  According to police, the first assault happened on Friday 18th November along Green Lanes at 9:30 am. A 24 year-old woman waiting at a bus stop near the BR station was approached by a man who pushed a needle into her, before escaping on foot and fleeing the scene along Umfreville Road towards Wightman Road.

Five days later on Wednesday 23 November, at 2:30pm, police believe the same suspect approached a 29-year-old woman also waiting at a bus stop. She was standing in Ferme Park Road, N4, when she was also stabbed. The suspect then ran off along Ferme Park Road towards Crouch End.

The suspect is described as being of Mediterranean appearance, 6ft in height with dark hair. He wore a baseball cap on both occasions and a dark-coloured jacket.

Both women were only slightly injured, but had to take various health tests to ensure they have not been infected. Results are pending.

Detective Chief Inspector Beverly Hawes, at Tottenham police station, said: “Whilst incidents like this are extremely rare we do ask people in the Haringey area to remain vigilant.”

Anyone with information or who knows the whereabouts of the suspect is asked to contact the incident room at Tottenham CID on 07785 381 215 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
