messageAggressive man - Peckham rye park
Posted by contented sow February 02, 11:43PM

Today a friend and I witnessed a man aggressively shouting at strangers, pushing them, chasing them - some solo parents with small, toddler age children. Friend was left really shaken when he approached her and pushed her really hard. We saw this approx 10am near the cafe / childrenís playground (Sunday) I think the police were called but wondered if anyone had any background, updates or witnessed anything similar? Guy was maybe on his 20s or 30s, black, wearing black jacket with green hood. After years of living here, first time Iíve seen something that felt v. Scary during daylight hours in park filled with families.

We stumbled across this guy in the park toilet building around 10:15am. Not sure what he was doing but clearly wasn't happy about being disturbed. He came out ranting and raging, pushed my partner around in front of the kids and tried to hit him. We made a quick exit to head to the cafe but he came up to us from behind and pushed my partner again, then kept walking on while continuing to shout. He was clearly in a very bad state and we were all quite shaken. The kids really needed the toilet so we didn't call the police and when we came back out he was gone. Poor guy, hope he's getting help and that noone was properly hurt.

just after a terrorist attack where the perpetrator chased people with a knife. Not a good thing to do.

I think it all happened before streatham and yes, police were called but I donít know if they found him.

Not sure if it's connected but the behaviours described seem similar: [www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk]

Saw a guy this morning about 10.30am wilst walking the dogs, seemed quite disturbed shouting and ranting, staring at people. made us feel very uncomfortable. Black guy with beard in long coat with hood. seemed unwell to be honest.

I may have encountered him this afternoon as I walked home along East Dulwich Road.
As I crossed a junction he marched straight towards me, in a very aggressive manner and way too close for comfort.
I dodged out of his way and he motioned to come after me, but stopped and shouted obscenities instead.
I'd say 30ish, light brown skin, black hair, longish black coat and a blue wool hat. He headed off towards the roundabout. Looks unkempt and unwell, but it was a bit of a scary encounter.
I'll report it online, as 101 number didn't pick up.

Is this guy of quite slight build ?

So this unstable wrong un is still on the loose and causing problems for decent folk, sometimes with kids, going about their day?

Why hasn't someone got him nicked or even clumped him, before he does some serious harm?

Same thing happened to me on on East Dulwich Grove on Monday at around 3pm going towards the Charter ED from Alleyn's. He was shouting and swinging his fists as he came towards me. I ran across the road and he continued to shout at me and then proceeded up the road and started throwing things at people. Exactly the same description as previous posters.

need to get a photo to give to police but too nervous to risk getting attacked. KidKruger yes he is of slight build

Saw him about 20 minutes ago on Deventer Crescent, East Dulwich Grove Estate. Going by other posts he seems to be around this area (near the schools) around 3pm.

My partner also saw him arguing with an elderly person on their doorstep on Deventer Crescent last Saturday. He only left the elderly man when he got his walking stick out. He seems well enough to pick his targets.

This man threw a cup of hot coffee in a ladies face today in Peckham rye park and knocked an elderly man to the ground. I didn't witness it personally, but my friend did. Once again, police have been informed. Also once again, there seems to be no police presence. The lady who had hot coffee thrown in her face reported it to the park office and was told there's nothing they can do.

They can get an ASBO and ban him from Southwark like they did Whistling Man

A bit of a character from a few years back with a very loud whistle and a predilection for directing buses - wasn't ever violent to my knowledge. But he was seen as bad enough that he was given an ASBO and banned when he broke it.

Thank you. So a whistling man gets an abso, but nothing done about violence.

Throwing anything is someone's face is assault and he should be arrested for that at least. Hard to know what his mental health condition is and whether or not he is taking medication, or worse still, using illegal drugs. But clearly he is making enough of a nuisance to warrant some attention from authorities.

Posted by lindylou February 05, 06:19PM

Yes, totally agree. By the look of it, it won't be long before someone is majorly hurt by this person. Please be on the lookout people, and take care.

I notice he is not picking on big strong men.

Why isnít the police doing anything? Why havenít they arrested him yet?

messageRe: Aggressive man - Peckham rye park

So this man assualted a lady and an elderly man in a park in broad daylight? surely the police are called and are there immediately to apprehend this violent, dangerous criminal?

messageRe: Aggressive man - Peckham rye park

Seems to be frequenting between Peckham Park and East Dulwich Grove, wearing the same clothes so should be easy for the Police to pick up.

Posted by goldilocks February 05, 10:16PM

Probably worth flagging on here that if anyone else is approached threatened by this man, calling 999 would be appropriate rather than reporting online - it sounds as though he needs picking up quickly.

messageRe: Aggressive man - Peckham rye park
Posted by binkylilyput February 06, 09:01AM

He sounds unwell

999 should be called to prevent someone from getting harmed and to get him help

Why didn't a couple of bystanders perform a "citizens arrest"? Similar to when that guy pushed an old boy onto the tube tracks.

Yes he's undoubtedly extremely unwell, but I'm afraid my sympathy stops quite a long way short of "poor guy". He is dangerous and shouldn't be out among the public.

I'm far from confident/competent in physical confrontation, but I'm not sure if I could forgive myself if I just stood by while women and the elderly were being assaulted.

I wonder if anyone has actually talked to the police about him, it doesnít sound as if heís even been reported because nothing has been donesad smiley

Worryingly a thread popped up on my Neighbourhood account about a woman being sexually assaulted on East Dulwich Grove at 2.30pm yesterday. The only description being this guy had two obvious scars on his face. I just wondered if they could they be linked to this guy?

messageRe: Aggressive man - Peckham rye park
Posted by Shivering swan1 February 06, 01:12PM

Yes, there seems to have been a few people who for whatever reason have not immediately dialled 999 and got this lunatic off the streets, am I missing here or are people just exaggerating the incidents detailed on this thread?
