At around 1.45pm on Tuesday, the 2nd of May officers received a report of a robbery of an e-scooter in St Saviours Road.
A 15-year-old boy was on his way to a fast food restaurant, when two males aged in their late teens approached the boy asking if he had seen one of the suspects’ bike.
The victim said that he hadn’t, but the two males said they would use the e-scooter that the victim was riding to find it.
The suspects then pushed the boy off the scooter onto the ground, and then rode off on the stolen scooter.
Officers have been following enquiries and are now appealing to the public for information.
DC Ian Croxford who leads the investigation said: “I would urge anyone who recognises the person in this image to come forward and speak to police. We have made good progress with this investigation but need the public’s help to progress this.
“This incident happened in broad daylight and people would have witnessed what went on – if you can help, please get in contact.”
Anyone with information should call 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 3000/5SEP. You can also provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
