Video: attempted bike-jacking in busy London street


HELMET camera footage released by the Met Police shows what officers believe was an attempted bike-jacking on a busy London road in broad daylight. 

The video shows three men forcing the victim to pull over and blocking his way while one attempts to snatch the key from his ignition.

It was captured on the victim’s helmet camera at around 1pm on April 24 on the A20 Eltham Road in Lewisham, south London.

Police say the suspects, on a Yamaha Tmax, Yamaha XJ6 and Triumph Street Triple, chased the victim and tried to collide with him before hurling abuse and threats at him.

The video was released on July 5 but police have yet to confirm any arrests.

A Visordown user posted a link to it on our forum, with the message ‘Somebody must know who they are.’

Anyone with any information is asked to call Lewisham CID on 101 quoting reference number 3209476/16 or Crimestoppers annonymously on 0800 555 111.
