Tesco Caledonian Road: Last Sighting Of Clapham Attack Suspect

A new image has been released of the last known sighting of a man wanted in connection with a chemical attack in Clapham last night (Wednesday).

The last sighting of Abdul Shokoor Ezedi, from Newcastle, was on Caledonian Road in Islington just before 9.50pm.

This was inside a Tesco store where Ezedi is believed to have purchased a bottle of water.

He left the shop and turned right.

Ezedi has significant injuries to the right side of his face which makes him distinctive.

Police are urging people not to approach Ezedi if he is seen, but instead to call 999 immediately.

If you have information as to his whereabouts you can reach the incident room directly on 0207 175 2784.

A 31-year-old woman and her two daughters – aged eight and three – all remain in hospital following the attack in Lessar Avenue, near Clapham Common at around 7.25pm on Wednesday.

It was reported that a man had thrown a child to the ground and that an alkaline substance had been thrown.

The man attempted to make off in a car but collided with a stationary vehicle, and then made off on foot, in the direction of Clapham Common.

Police believe the man and woman are known to each other.

None of their conditions are life-threatening but the injuries to the woman and younger girl could be life-changing.

According to police, it may be some time before hospital staff are able to say how serious the injuries might be.

Three women – two in their 30s and one in her 50s – who were injured when they bravely came to the aid of the family, have all been discharged from hospital with minor burns injuries.

A man in his 50s who also helped declined hospital treatment for minor injuries he suffered.

Five officers who were injured as they responded have all been treated and have left hospital.

Police have praised members of the public and officers for helping in this “terrifying” scenario.
