Written by on 9 November 2020
Detectives have launched a rogues gallery of suspects wanted for gun crime, robbery and other violent offences.
Police are urging the public to help them trace nine suspects they describe as “high harm offenders”.
The new appeal comes after a four-month blitz in which 850 other dangerous suspects were arrested across London.
Detective Inspector Dean Purvis, of the Metropolitan Police’s Violent Crime Taskforce, said: “We are relentlessly pursuing violent offenders and bringing them to justice so that we can keep our city safe, but we need the help of the public as well.
“Somebody, somewhere knows something about these offenders and I urge you to pass any information to us as soon as possible.”
They include Jordan King, 25, from North London, wanted for a stabbing in August.
He’s described as white, with blue eyes and dark blond hair.
Alan Kozhir, 20, is suspected of a robbery in Hampstead last month.
He is Asian with dark eyes and hair.
Mark Toth, 35, is wanted for recall to prison and in connection with a robbery in southwest London a year ago this week. He has dark eyes and hair.
Robert Jones, 36, is sought for grievous bodily harm after the stabbing of a man in West London in January. He is white, with tanned skin, large ears and brown eyes and hair.
Ruairi Bicknell, 26, is wanted for recall to prison for allegedly breaching the licence conditions on release after his manslaughter conviction.
He is white, with blue eyes, dark hair and has a blemished face.
He has links to Hammersmith in West London.
Fabian Castillo-Bellaqa, 22, is wanted for GBH after a stabbing of a man in Chelsea two years ago. He is white, with dark eyes and almost black hair.
Mark Maloney, 23, is wanted for recall to prison and in connection with a moped-enabled jewellery robbery in Mayfair in May, last year. He is white, of medium build with dark blond hair.
Raymond Olabode, 21, is suspected of Class A drug supply. He is black, with long, dark dreadlocks and a full beard. He has links to Erith and Dartford, Kent.
Samir Drias, 29, is wanted for a robbery and stabbing in Mayfair in June last year. He is Middle Eastern, of large build, with dark eyes and hair and a beard. He has links to Camden in north London.
Det Insp Purvis said: “These individuals have caused harm and unrest in our communities and it is our priority to arrest them to prevent them from causing further destruction.
“We have already arrested more than 850 high harm offenders as part of our continued drive to tackle violent crime and we will not stop. We are dedicated in taking the most dangerous people off the streets and will keep Londoners safe.”
He added: “Similarly, if your see your photo here, do the right thing and deal with your actions so you can move forward, and hand yourself in to your nearest police station. We are searching for you day and night and will find you eventually.”
The appeal is part of the Metropolitan Police’s annual Autumn Nights campaign to round up wanted violent suspects as nights grow longer.
