Man Robbed Motorcyclist As He Lay Injured After Crash
Tuesday 8th July 2014
Police have appealed for help to find a man who robbed a motorcyclist as he lay injured on the road after a crash.
The man pretended to be a 'good Samaritan' after he saw a crash involving a blue Triumph Bonneville motorcycle and silver Audi.
As the 51-year-old motorcyclist lay prostrate with serious leg injuries, the man pretended he was giving first aid and left when police arrived.
Shortly afterwards, the man realised £40 was missing from his pocket.
The image above was captured from another witness, wearing a helmet camera during the incident on 7th June on Uxbridge Road in Hayes.
PC Raj Patara said: "We appeal to anyone who may know the identity of this man who robbed a badly injured victim while he was in a state of shock and bleeding heavily. Do you recognise him?
"We know that a small crowd gathered at the scene and further witness mobile phone recordings may have been taken. We are keen to trace any new pieces of evidence. Where you there? Did take a recording?"
Anyone with information is urged to call police on 020 8246 1486 or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
