A suspected shoplifter has been hit by bus after "fleeing a TK Maxx store" on a busy south London high street.
Police sealed off Brixton Road just after 12.15pm on Monday after a man was hit by a bus.
According to witnesses, the man, believed to be a shoplifter, fled TK Maxx and “headbutted” the TfL double decker.
Ric Baker wrote on Twitter: “Shoplifter just headbutted a @TfL bus running out of TK Maxx Brixton in chaos.”
Scotland Yard confirmed police had been called to a collision between a bus and a pedestrian in Brixton Road.
A spokesman said a man was treated by paramedics from London Ambulance Service but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
The road was reopened shortly after 2pm.
