Police are on the hunt for a man who has repeatedly shown up at an ambulance station in London and pelted it with eggs – and even spat at it.
The cops have been forced to act after the most recent incidents occurred on Christmas Day and December 30 in Neasden, north west London.
Police were called to Brent Ambulance Station on the Falcon Park Industrial Estate at around 4pm following reports that a man had been throwing eggs at the building.
He was described as black, medium build, aged in his 30s or 40s, with a black beard, wearing a burgundy hoodie, dark trousers and glasses. He appeared to be carrying a hammer and may have use of a moped.
On Wednesday, 30 December, the man returned and on this occasion he threw eggs at ambulances.
It is believed the same man has turned up at the ambulance station on previous occasions when it is alleged he spat on the intercom and the front window.
PCSO Tony Gassett, of the Met's Brent Neighbourhoods Team, said: “These may sound like minor incidents but each one is distressing for the ambulance crews who are based at this station.
“We know that as London faces a new wave of Covid-19 cases, the London Ambulance Service is in incredibly high demand.
"Every time a building or a vehicle needs to be cleaned because it has been hit with eggs – or worse with spit – it causes delays that could impact on people who need urgent medical help.
“The photo we’re releasing today is very clear and I’m sure someone will recognise the man in it. Please come forward with any information that could help us to locate him.”
