London Ambulance Service paramedics arrived at the scene and found a 42-year-old man with a serious head injury.

He was treated at the scene before being moved to a hospital in South London where he remains in critical condition.

Met Police have confirmed that his next of kin have been informed.

Detective Inspector Tom Revell of the South Area Command CID said: “Initial enquiries suggest that the assault occurred after a confrontation in the street between the victim and another man.

“We believe the person in the picture we are releasing will be able to assist us with our enquiries.

“If he sees this appeal, I would urge him to come forward and make himself known to the police.

“If anyone else who sees this appeal knows who he is, I would ask them to pass that information on to us.”

Police have asked that anyone with information call them on 101 giving the reference 536/17OCT or by calling Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Officers want to hear from anyone who witnessed the assault or who has information about the incident.
