Police ask public to help locate man involved in hit and run collision

Officers from the City of London Police are asking the public for their help in tracing a man they wish to speak to in relation to a hit and run collision that occurred in the City earlier this week. 

CCTV images from a vehicle hire shop, released today (Friday 28 June 2019) by police, show Jonathan Turner, from Sutton, present when a white BMW was hired. The car was later involved in a collision, at around midday on Monday 24 June 2019 on Fetter Lane, that left a 29-year-old man with serious injuries.

Two people have already been arrested in connection with this incident. A female, 33, from Sutton was arrested on Monday 24 June 2019. A female, 23, from Sutton was arrested on Tuesday 25 June 2019. Both have since been released under investigation.

Detective Inspector Sarah Smallwood, who is leading the investigation for the City of London Police, said:

“A young man has been left with serious injuries and is not yet able to leave hospital and go home to his friends and family.

“We are appealing to anybody who may know where Mr Turner is, or who sees him, to contact police as soon as they possibly can. I am confident someone has information that can help us find him.

“I am also appealing to Mr Turner directly and asking him to do the right thing by coming and speaking to police.”

Anyone with any information regarding Mr Turner’s whereabouts should contact the City of London Police by calling 101 and quoting 19*326578. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers via their website or by calling 0800 555 111.
