Appeal after series of racist graffiti in Eltham

Officers investigating a series of incidents of racial graffiti in the Eltham area have issued an image of a man they want to identify.

It is believed the same person is responsible for the graffiti which has been taking place sporadically over a period of around three years. However, there has been a recent spike in the vandalism with four incidents being reported in December. The graffiti espouses far-right sentiment.

Inspector Kristina Money runs the Safer Neighbourhoods Teams which cover Eltham and said:

“This individual has been active for a significant period of time and his actions have caused significant distress in the local community.

“Throughout the last three years we have been building a picture of his offending and collating as much evidence as possible. The local community have been really supportive as we’ve carried out this work, along with our colleagues at the council, to identify this person but we need the public’s help.

“This man makes efforts to conceal his identity but I am hoping the image may resonate with someone who can assist in helping us establish who he is. If you can help, please get in contact with us.”

The most recent incidents took place in the early hours on four separate dates in December 2023 along Rochester Way, SE9 – the graffiti was racist in its nature and daubed on both public and private property. Throughout the three year period police are aware of, graffiti has been targeted at locations in the Eltham Page, Eltham Park and Progress and Eltham Town and Avery Hill wards.

The man responsible is described as around 5ft 8 inches tall, of medium build and who walks with a distinctive gait.
