WANTED – REWARD
11:00 AM WEDNESDAY 30 JANUARY 2019.
A man was seen driving at speed before ramming pedestrians and cars in Woolwich, East London.
A mother was pushing a baby in a push chair on a busy pavement when a man drove at speed towards the pram. The driver missed the pedestrians who hid behind a row of parked cars, which were in turn totalled.
One of the parked cars which was rammed an unknown number of times belonged to a member of the Oman Royal Family. It is unclear at this stage whether the mother and baby or Omani Royal were the intended target.
At this stage the investigation remains open minded as to motives but is being treated at this stage as attempted murder.
When members of the public approached the driver, he drove off at speed in the direction of Tesco, Woolwich.
SE18 – WOOLWICH, EAST LONDON
The car was last seen on Plumstead High Street (WOOLWICH) speeding in the direction of Tesco, Woolwich, past the Greenwich Islamic Centre and several schools.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
