Police investigating three separate incidents in Hornchurch

The Rising Sun pub suspended some of its security staff following one of the incidents

Police are looking into three separate incidents that took place in Hornchurch over the bank holiday weekend. 

A man, aged in his 20s, was threatened with acid by three males in High Street on Friday, 27 August. No one was injured. 

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon near the scene. He has been bailed to return on a date in late September. 

Officers are also working with Havering Council to look at the licensing conditions of The Rising Sun pub after a 25-year-old man was allegedly assaulted outside the venue at 11pm on Saturday.

He was found with facial injuries that were not life-threatening. 

 Both the pub and two members of security staff are assisting officers with their enquiries. 

“Together with our partnership licensing colleagues, we continue to work with the licensee who has assured us that the services of some security staff have been suspended while our investigation takes place. Discussions around licensing conditions are ongoing,” said Inspector Mel Gilmour.

“We are aware of footage being circulated on social media and ask that this footage, which is now being treated as evidence, is no longer shared as speculation around criminal offences is unhelpful to the investigation and could prejudice any future legal proceedings.”

A third man, aged 39, was also found suffering facial injuries outside a licensed premises in High Street at around 3.25am on Monday. 

He was assisted by members of the public before being taken to hospital where he was found to have suffered a serious head injury. 

He is now in a stable condition. No arrests have been made. 

“Those using the bars and restaurants in the area will notice a heightened police presence during coming weekends to provide additional reassurance,” added Inspector Gilmour. 

If you have information relating to any of these incidents but don’t want to speak directly to police call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
