Appeal to find ‘unconscious’ man after car drives at pedestrians over bar row

27 Oct

Shocking footage has emerged showing a car deliberately ramming pedestrians outside a bar, leaving a man “unconscious” on the pavement.

The Metropolitan Police said the incident in south London left several people injured but “could have had fatal consequences”.

Police believe an “altercation” inside the Mekan Restaurant and Bar in Catford escalated and “led to the driver of the vehicle targeting the pedestrians in question”.

An appeal has been launched to trace the victim, who despite apparently being knocked out, did not seek help.

In CCTV recorded in the early hours of September 16, a hatchback approaches a group in Bromley Road before mounting the pavement and colliding with several people.

After the car reverses away, a man can be seen lying flat on his back, apparently unconscious.

Police said the vehicle made several more manoeuvres, deliberately targeting pedestrians before driving away.
