Police officers in Wandsworth have launched a manhunt to track down a person who may have information about an offence that took place in the South London borough earlier this month. In an appeal launched on social media on Tuesday (March 29), police said they want to speak to Michael Lee regarding a kidnapping in the area.
The man is said to have been born in 1984, and is therefore likely to be 39 years of age, or has just turned 40. Police released an image of Lee wearing a black and yellow jacket and a red jumper.
Lee’s location is of interest to police, who would like to speak to him following an incident that involved Kidnap and Grievous Bodily Harm with Intent on Garratt Lane, Wandsworth. The incident is said to have taken place on March 19 and they believe he may have information about it.
