A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following an incident in Newham

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following an incident in Newham. 

Police were called at 11.07pm on Wednesday, 10 June to reports of a collision on Hermit Road at the junction with Grange Road, E13.

A man was found unconscious at the scene and was treated by colleagues from the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance. 

The man, aged 46, appeared to have been in collision with a car and was taken to hospital. An update on his condition awaits. 

Police Sergeant Simon Biggs, from the North East Command Unit, said: “Witnesses at the scene described seeing a large black vehicle, which was initially stationary, drive at the victim at speed before making off.

“A car has since been seized in connection with the investigation and will be forensically examined. 

“At this time, we cannot be certain on motive, however we do not believe this was a random attack. 

“Enquiries made overnight led to the arrest of a 31-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder and he has been taken to an east London police station where he awaits questioning.”

Roads remain closed at Grange Road with the junction of Suffolk Road, to Grange Road with the junction of Hermit Road.
