Police appeal over attack near Walthamstow Fire Station

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Police near the scene of the attack in Forest Road. Police near the scene of the attack in Forest Road.

Police have released further details of an attack near Walthamstow Fire Station as part of an appeal for information.

A 35-year-old man suffered facial injuries in the incident, which happened on Monday lunchtime.

It had been believed that the attack took place in the street because police taped off part of the pavement outside the station in Forest Road.

But it has now emerged that the assault occurred at a house next door.

A Met spokesman said three men knocked on the door of the property at around 12.20pm and attacked the man when he answered.

They went inside and grabbed a 19-year-old woman who they then gagged and tied up.

Police were called but the trio escaped before officers arrived.

Detectives say they are keeping an "open mind" with regards to the motive and there are no reports of anything being stolen.

The man who was attacked was rushed to hospital as a medical priority but he has since been discharged.

Police have released descriptions of the three suspects.

The first is a white man aged between 30 to 35. He is about 5"9 and was wearing dark clothing.

The second is a white man aged between 25 and 30. He is about 5"11 and was also wearing dark clothing

The third suspect is a mixed race man aged between 28 and 29. He is 5"7 and was wearing white Adidas trainers, black gloves, white jeans and a dark zip up jacket without a hood.

A Met spokesman said: "Police are urging anyone with any information about this incident to contact Detective Constable Ray Anderson from Waltham Forest Police on 0208 721 5048.

"To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

I was told by the Grimacing Police Constable that the attack took place in the street.

Maybe you should, along with the reporter, check your facts before launching your personal attacks?

Maybe they were out on a shout who knows? but let me offer you a way of finding out, pop in the fire station and tell them your thoughts on sleeping in tax payer provided beds, so far you have had a pop at the police and the fire service,for your own sake leave the ambulance service well alone or you may need them sooner than you think

Firemen are citizens and citizens help rescue people from buildings ablaze and Citizens step in as have-a-go heroes so why is it that Firemen remove themselves from Common Law Public Duty?

Firemen like the Police have had it dar too easy and have gilt edged pensions at the Public Expense although it is accepted that they pay more of a contribution at around 10%.

Where else do you get paid to have a nice evening meal with your colleagues and then retire to bed for a good 8 hours sleep so that you can get up refreshed to do your more lucrative work as a Black Cabby or as a Fireman in a Theatre? Now and again they get called out to a fire and turn up mob handed but there are also less paid dangerous jobs.

When it comes to crime, we are all in it together, even the Fireman.

I will treat your threat of assault with the contempt that it merits.

Cornbeefur we are all aware of your views on fire fighter but why on earth do you insist on implying they saw the incident and did nothing, The staff at the fire station did not see the attack. They were not asleep, Fire fighter don’t sleep in the day., They were doing their job. Why is that so hard for you to believe?

A man was attached and you are using it as an excuse to vent your own views about public sector workers, don’t you think that is rather low.

Don’t you think accusing someone of intentionally not helping in a situation like this when it’s not the case is dishonest and pretty **** despicable. If you don’t like firefighter fine ,w e get it. BUT do not now or ever accuse a person of intentionally not intervening in a public safety issue unless you are **** sure that’s the case.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND!

You do not have to write in capital letters to convey any point in desperation Diane.

A point was raised that Firemen do not intervene in a situation when a person gets attacked which flies in the face of the duty of a citizen in Common Law.

All citizens have a duty to assist each other.

Because firemen have an essentially cushy job whereby they can sleep on Night Duty in nice beds paid for by the Taxpayer, and often have second jobs also, they should be prepared to assist a member of the public if they are being attacked in the absence of Police (which is often the case).

I realise that the Police, following proper investigation established that the incident occurred in a house next door but this does not detract from the fact that they should help out from time to time.

As I have said before you are without doubt the most obnoxoius person ever, not only do you use this as a platform to post your vile and warped views(which are often littered with untruths) you seem to take pleasure in doing so

And just for the record I am not making a threat of assault, mearly pointing out that if instead of hiding behind your keyboard, you had the courage to voice your bitter & twisted comments face to face with the Fire Fighters you may possibly require the services of one of the other emergency services

'Vile and obnoxious?' You do not know me and why would anyone say that kind of thing anyhow to someone over a few comments on a thread?

If you do not agree with something, then fine, no need to spout venom.

I am quite happy to point out their privileges to their face, indeed, how do you assume that I have or would not?

You do them a disservice by suggesting that they would risk their career and pension rights should they receive any verbal criticism.

Why do you suggest that they are violent? have you experienced such violence and assaults in the past? Please tell?

They have no qualms about leaving the Public at risk of danger when they have their 'lightening strikes' They may not be as honourable and loyal as you suggest.

You are quite right I do not know you, however what I do know is that your comments on both this article and numerous others in the past have served not only to cause insult at every opportunity, but have also at times been littered with untruths which when asked to substantiate you have either been unable to do so or have chosen not to(possibly one of the same) and as for spouting venom you need look no further than your own comments
If you have pointed out what you call their privileges face to face then say so, but I am sure that both you and I know you have not, and at no time have I suggested they are violent once again a twisted response designed to take away your inability to be able to read, digest, and then comment without resorting to insults
I therefore stand by my previous comments I find both you and some of your comments vile and obnoxious and littered with untruths that is unless you can prove otherwise
