Message from Sgt Rob Goodwin
You may have noticed a larger than normal police presence in the Penge area over the last few days.
On Friday 28th October at about 11.55pm there was a GBH on Croydon Road at the junction with the High Street required a crime scene for short while.
On Saturday 29th October at about 8.00am there was a further serious assault on Kent House Road which required the road to be closed between High Street and Theisiger Road .
On Sunday 30th October between 3pm and 3.30pm , following several reports of serious disorder between a number of men involving weapons, Avenue Road was closed for a short while, so that paramedics and specialist police units could deal with the aftermath.
All three incidents were not linked and each are being investigated locally by Bromley CID.
Thankfully none of the injuries to the victims were life threatening.
Please pass on our thanks to the community if they have been unduly effected by any of the crime scene cordons. These are always necessary so we can reap the best forensic evidence left at the scenes, which helps secure convictions in court.
