Appeal to trace dangerous driver, believed to be rapper Merky Ace, after a car was ‘driven into police vehicle and toward oncoming traffic with baby in his car’

An urgent appeal has been launched to trace a dangerous driver who backed into a police car and drove into oncoming traffic with a baby inside his car.

The Met has issued an image of Aisa Khan Sampson-Spencer, aged 29, and known under his rapper name as as ‘Merky Ace’.  He and his vehicle – linked to Greenwich, Croydon and Barking and Dagenham – are believed to have been involved in the incident. 

In April, on Thursday 29th, a police officer approached a parked black BMW X1 near the McDonalds drive-thru restaurant on Eastern Avenue in Ilford after spotting that it had fake number plates. There was a baby inside the car at the time. 

Police said while the officer was speaking to the driver, believed to be Sampson-Spencer, he suddenly reversed his car and struck the police vehicle before mounting the pavement and driving off against the flow of traffic via the eastbound carriageway of the A12 Eastern Avenue.

He was captured on body-worn video wearing a black flat cap, brown-framed glasses, and a dark blue padded gilet over a black long sleeved top with Nike written down the sleeves in white.

PC Charlie Snooks, from the Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “This was an irresponsible and reckless act that could have had severe consequences for the driver, his infant passenger, people walking and cycling, and other motorists.

“I would urge anyone with any information to inform police immediately.”

Anyone who has any information should call 101 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
