Police need help in tracing a Cricklewood man who left a hospital while being treated for a serious head injury.

Fidel Knight was being treated at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington after being assaulted on April 4 in Cricklewood Lane.

The 39-year-old left hospital with a family member at around 8pm on May 8.

There was a possible sighting of him at Starbucks in Muswell Hill two days later, when a man matching Fidel’s description appeared to be disorientated.

Doctors and police are concerned for his welfare as his head injuries and his condition are such that he requires ongoing treatment, Scotland Yard said.

A hospital order is in place which requires police to return Fidel to hospital for urgent medical treatment when he is found.

A spokesman said: “He has no previous history of violence; however officers are concerned that Fidel may become agitated if approached due to his serious head injury.”

Fidel is described as very thin, and may still be wearing a bandage over his head or his eye.

He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a black jacket.

Detectives from Colindale CID are investigating the assault. There has been no arrest.

Anyone who may have seen Fidel can call the Missing Persons Unit at Barnet via 101, quoting reference 8331/ 8May.

For an immediate sighting call 999.
