Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was reportedly assaulted and forced into a car in Wood Green.

Officers were called at approximately 7.30pm on Friday, 29 March following the incident in Russell Avenue, N22.

It was reported that a male riding a bicycle was assaulted by up to four males who had got out of a dark coloured car. The victim was then forced into the car which was driven off at speed.

Witnesses stated that a male minicab driver had stopped in the road and would have seen the incident – however, the driver left prior to police arrival.

Officers need to speak to that minicab driver in order to confirm what he saw.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to call officers at the North Area Command Unit on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD 7574/29March.
