Police are appealing for help to identify a man who was caught on CCTV throwing a bottle at a moving car.

The incident happened at around 07:25hrs on 24 August on the Northern Perimeter Road near to Heathrow Airport.

A man, travelling in the front passenger seat of a car, threw a plastic bottle at another car. The windscreen of the victim’s car, which was a mincab, was partially damaged, requiring the windscreen to be replaced. Nobody was injured.

The driver of the car from which the bottle was thrown has been traced. He is a man, aged in his 20s, but he claims not to recall the identity of the passenger. The vehicle was on loan to him from a garage in Surrey and, as such, is not sought by police.

The suspect is a white man, aged in his 20s, who had dark hair and a beard at the time of the incident. He may have connections to the Bedfont area.

Officers are asking anyone who can identify the man throwing the bottle to call Heathrow CID via 101.To remain anonoymous, call Crimestppers on 0800 555 111.
