Published Wednesday, 27 January 2016

A man who was seen on CCTV beating a woman with a child in Connop Road in Enfield was arrested by police on 15 January at 5.26pm after CCTV operatives radioed for assistance.

Cameras caught the suspect after sharp eyed operators saw him beating the woman while she was standing with a child. After throwing a bottle at her and getting her into a headlock police arrived on the scene, arrested him, and took him to Edmonton police station for questioning.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Organisations and Culture, Cllr Yasemin Brett said “This attack on a woman and child, in broad daylight on a busy street, is completely unacceptable.

“I am pleased that our CCTV operators took swift action, and managed to get police to the scene quickly before the victim was hurt more seriously.”
