IPCC witness appeal following incident in Clapton

The IPCC is appealing for witnesses after a man was allegedly assaulted by a police officer in east London.

Police were present at a cordon for an unrelated matter at around 5pm on Friday 5 May, close to the junction of Almack Road and Powerscroft Road, Clapton, E5, when the incident occurred.

A man repeatedly approached police officers at the cordon, before being involved in an incident with one officer in which he sustained a cut to his head. A referral was made to the IPCC by the Metropolitan Police Service on 11 May and a decision was made to independently investigate the officer’s use of force.

The IPCC is keen to speak to anybody who saw the incident or recorded it on their mobile phone. Witnesses can call the IPCC on 0800 096 9071 or email us at sends e-mail)

IPCC investigators will also be carrying out enquiries in the local area this evening (Monday 19 June).
