Fortunately air cadets from the Battersea Squadron were nearby, one of whom is 16 years old, and they attempted to prevent the assault.
The man made off down Lavender Hill and at the junction of St Johns Rd, he approached a motorcyclist and tried to push him off his bike.
Eventually the man, from Lambeth, was caught by an off-duty police officer with help from member of the public.
He was arrested for ABH, common assault, failing to remain at the scene of an accident and driving while unfit through drink or drugs.
He has been released on bail but is currently detained under the Mental Health Act.
The cadets were praised for their actions and Sergeant Nathan Shickle said: "Their prompt and brave actions undoubtedly prevented further serious injuries to members of the public. I have recommended one cadet in particular for a commendation."
