The Metropolitan Police Service are today releasing 13 images of people who are wanted in connection with mainly violent offences across London.
Those wanted are suspected to be linked to a range of offences including robbery, assault, possession of weapons, kidnap and other offences.
To help locate these wanted men, their faces will be displayed on the side of two vans which will be driven around areas of London today and tomorrow (Thursday, 13 February and Friday, 14 February) where we believe they may be.
This is all part of the Met’s continued effort to drive down violence across the capital and ensure that those who pose the highest risk the public are tracked down and are brought before the courts.
Detective Chief Superintendent (DCS) Lee Hill, Head of the Violent Crime Task Force, said: “Some of these people are wanted in connection with some shocking acts of violence and I would urge anyone with information to get in touch.
“I know there will be people who have information on where they are and with your help, it will only be a matter of time before they are located and dealt with.
“We understand that members of the public may be nervous to talk with police, therefore if you don’t want to talk to us I would encourage you to contact Crimestoppers. They are completely independent of police and any information you provide to them is 100% anonymous.”
In addition to pursuing these wanted men, officers across the Met are conducting a number of operational activities throughout this week to tackle violence, including high visibility patrols and executing a number of warrants at addresses.
DCS Hill added: “Violence continues to be our number one priority and we are absolutely committed to taking decisive action to cut violence and track down wanted offenders.
“The proactivity from all our officers across the organisation will continue, as we work to deny criminals the opportunity to commit acts of violence on the streets of London.”
