DETECTIVES IN NORTH London have made an urgent appeal for information after a violent robbery left a 98-year-old man fighting for his life.

Peter Gouldstone suffered a head injury and extensive bruising to his body. 

He remains in hospital following the 6 November attack, where he is critical but stable.

Officers returned to the scene in on Evesham Road in Enfield this evening in an attempt to jog people’s memory to anything they may have witnessed last Tuesday.

A 26-inch Panasonic television was stolen by the suspects, along with other personal possessions belonging to the man.

A number of local people and organisations have offered rewards for information that leads to the conviction of those responsible for attacking Peter.

Detective inspector Paul Ridley said: “Mr Gouldstone remains desperately ill in hospital while those responsible for his injuries are walking around free.

Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could provide a missing piece of the investigation. I particularly want to hear from people that may have been offered the Panasonic television that was stolen, or who saw either people or vehicles in the vicinity of Evesham Road, Enfield, N11 that may have appeared out of place.
