- Credit: Archant
This is the horrific moment a violent thug attacked a woman pushing a buggy in Stamford Hill.
The robbery in Darenth Road on New Year’s Day was caught on residential CCTV from across the road.
The mother can be seen trying to get away from the man, who chases her along the road. As she turns to confront her attacker, the buggy carrying her two-year-old daughter is knocked over. The man then appears to grab something from the woman before running off as she swings at him.
Mother and daughter were not injured but are both said to be shaken by the attack.
Police are investigating the attack and no arrests have been made. The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man, aged 25-30 and 5ft 9ins. He has a slim build with short cropped black hair and was wearing a blue trench coat and blue jeans.
