Man wanted for hammer attack

Detectives have released the image of a man wanted for a violent attack involving a hammer. Satheesan Appu, aged 42, is wanted by detectives from the Met’s East Area Offender Management team following a vicious domestic assault in which he attacked his victim with a hammer, causing a facial injury. He is also wanted by police for threats to kill. Appu is known to frequent East Ham and Ilford, but could be in the greater Newham or Redbridge area. It is also believed that he currently has no fixed address and may be sleeping rough. He’s described as an Asian man with black hair and a moustache, however he may have shaved off his moustache in order to change his appearance. He is 5ft 9” tall. PC Dave Whaley said: “My team and I are committed to finding Appu and bringing him into custody. “The victim in this case remains very worried that Appu remains at large in London and we need the public’s help in order to locate and arrest him.” Anyone who sees the suspect, or knows of his whereabouts is asked to call 999 as soon as possible, and not to approach him.
