Appeal to identify men after disorder at Crystal Palace v Aston Villa at Selhurst Park on 32 Aug 2019

18 January, 2020:

The Metropolitan Police have released the following appeal

Officers want to identify eight people following disorder at a Crystal Palace v Aston Villa football match on 31 August last year.

At the end of the match at Selhurst Park, a goal was disallowed and a number of Aston Villa fans ran onto the area near the pitch, attacking stewards and later police.

A number of individuals have been arrested and we are appealing for the public’s help in identifying the people in these pictures.

Detective Sergeant Matt Simpson from the Met’s Public Order Investigation Team said:

“People go to football matches for a good time, not to witness or experience violence. It is unacceptable that this happened and with the public’s help we can find those who were prepared to behave in this way. I urge anyone with information to call us on 020 824 693 86 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

The Police have released the following images of the men.



Appeal for information after teen stabbed in Croydon

The Metropolitan Police have released the following appeal:

Police were called to Woodside Road, SE25 at 23:56hrs on Thursday, 18 April following reports of a stabbing.

A boy, aged 16, was found with a stab injury and taken to hospital. His injuries have since been confirmed to be non-life-threatening.

Officers from the Met’s South Area CID are investigating and have identified the victim was assaulted in nearby Spring Lane as he was travelling home from a friend’s house on his bicycle.

At this stage, it is believed that four suspects travelling on two mopeds followed the victim before two passengers got off and carried out the attack.

No arrests have been made and detectives are keen to hear from anyone with information.

Detective Sergeant Danielle Power said,

“This was a brutal attack and one which could have had far more serious consequences.

While we have spoken to a number of witnesses in relation to this incident, we believe more people may have seen the mopeds in the Woodside Road area at the time and we urge them to come forward and speak to us.”

Anyone who witnessed this incident or has information is asked to contact police 101 quoting reference CAD 9220/18APR.
