Muswell Hill residents have been warned to stay on their guard after reports of a well-built man barging into mothers and their children.

Discussing the strange incidents on Twitter, one mum said there have been five of six instances of a man marching up to women and their children and “aggressively” knocking into them.

Pc Sharon Rogers, neighbourhood officer for Muswell Hill, told the Ham&High that at least one such attack was recorded on Monday at about 9.30am in Queens Avenue.

She said the suspect was described as a white male, well-built, about 6ft tall, in his mid-to-late 30s and wearing casual clothes.

The incident was logged as unsolved common assault, she said, adding that residents should call 999 if they witness an attack of that kind or 101 if they have information about an earlier one.

One mum, who did not wish to be named, said she was attacked while walking along Trott Road with her seven-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son on March 12.

She said she saw a stocky man coming towards her, who began to slow down as he got closer.

He pulled a windcheater hood over his face before speeding up and barging “right into my slight, small seven-year-old daughter”, she said, which sent the youngster “flying into the ground”.

The man then “kicked her scooter away and march on”, she added, which left her in “total disbelief and shock” – especially since her daughter was left hurt and crying.

The mum said: “She is still talking about the horrible man and we are all shocked by what he did.

“She was crying and said, ‘Why did he do that to me, mummy?’”.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
