A 46-year-old man working in a van hire shop in Court Road in South London was attacked by two men in his office at around 13:30 yesterday.

Crystal clear CCTV footage, which could be the key to catching these two, shows how one man chokes the victim out while the other rips his £15k gold Rolex from his wrist.
The men escaped in a black Peugeot 206 which had a man and a woman waiting inside. The end of the clip shows the two men hanging around outside the shop before they burst in.
Detective Andrew Payne says:
The suspects stood outside the van hire shop in broad daylight for some time, appearing to look at the price list before entering and violently attacking the victim, choking him to the point where he lost consciousness.
Luckily the victim did not sustain any serious injuries and did not require hospital treatment.
We have taken the decision to release the footage to show the level of violence used, and ask the public for help in apprehending the persons responsible.
Recognise either of these two muppets?
If so, get in touch with the relevant people. I mean the guy’s Rolex is probably long gone but who knows – watches do turn up in the weirdest places sometimes.
