Separately, following the death of a 16-year-old child on Sunday, police have accused a 19-year-old male with murder.
Damarie Omare Roye was found with stab wounds on Bensham Manor Road in Croydon two days prior.
Anyone who observed the incident is asked to contact the police.
They’re specifically looking for a dark moped that was “hidden, abandoned, parked, or perhaps being ridden near” Thornton Heath at the time of the incident.
Deputy Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn is in charge of the inquiry.
“Damarie was a popular young man among those who knew him,” she stated.
“His death has left his family and friends in an indescribable state of grief.
“We suspect Damarie was riding a blue mountain bike at the time of the attack.
“Anyone who saw him in the neighborhood – with or without the bike – or witnessed the attack is urged to contact the police.”
