Thieves took the e-scooter of a teenager who was killed in a hit and run in Bromley on Sunday. Police have appealed for witnesses regarding both incidents.
The BBC reports that the Metropolitan Police were called to Southborough Lane, Bromley, at around 1.20am following reports of a collision involving a motorist and an e-scooter rider.
The e-scooter rider was taken to a central London hospital by the London Ambulance Service, where he later died.
The 20-year-old driver of a red Fiat Punto was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop at the scene of a collision, causing death by dangerous driving and providing a positive alcohol breath test.
Regarding the disappearance of the e-scooter, officers said they were keen to speak with the occupants of a dark-coloured people carrier type car with a sliding door, which was seen in the area.
Anyone who witnessed the collision, the removal of the e-scooter, or who saw a red Fiat Punto being driven in the area at around 1.20am, has been asked to call police on 0208 285 1574, providing the reference 775/18JUL.
