Detectives are investigating an incident in which an injured man was dragged from a vehicle and left at a petrol station in Bullsmoor.

Police were called by London Ambulance Service shortly after 9am on Saturday, 10th June, to a man collapsed on the forecourt of the BP petrol station in Bullsmoor Lane, not far from the A10 dual carriageway on the approach to the M25.

The man, aged in his 50s, was taken to hospital by LAS. His condition is now described as “serious but stable”.

Detectives have established that a silver Mercedes drove into the garage shortly before 5am. The driver of the Mercedes pulled the injured man from the vehicle and left him on the ground of the petrol station before driving off.

The victim did not have visible injuries but was unconscious. He was not given any help until emergency services were called some four hours later.

The Mercedes and the driver have been traced. A 42-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and has been bailed pending further enquiries.

The Metropolitan Police is now appealing for drivers who were in the area on Saturday morning to check dashcam footage as enquiries continue to establish the circumstances. Anyone who was driving in the area before 5am may have material that could assist the investigation.

Anyone with footage, or witnesses who saw anything suspicious, are asked to call 101, ref 2156/10jun. To remain anonymous, contact Crimestoppers.
