Police in Sutton arrested a 16-year-old male on Sunday, 8 March for three offences in connection with a collision involving a motorcycle and pedestrian at the junction of Malden Road and London Road, Sutton, on Saturday, 28 February shortly before 00:30hrs.

The male was arrested for theft of vehicle, dangerous driving and failing to stop after an accident. He was bailed to return in mid-May.

Police are continuing to appeal for information about the collision which happened as the male pedestrian was crossing Malden Road. As traffic began to move off from the junction, a motorcycle collided with the man, sending him careering down the road. The rider, who was knocked off his bike during the collision, is then seen to get up and angrily berate the stricken pedestrian before getting back on his motorcycle and driving off down Cheam Common Road.

As he makes off, a car which was waiting at traffic lights at Malden Road pursues the motorcycle down Cheam Common Road.

Officers are also appealing to the occupants of that car to get in contact with officers as they may be able to assist the investigation. They are also keen for the driver of a stretch limousine car seen at the junction at the time to come forward along with anyone who has information about the registration index of the motorcycle.

The pedestrian, aged 53, was taken to a south London hospital for treatment to his injuries - his condition is not life threatening.

The motorcycle suffered some damage during the collision, losing a top box and mudguard.

Anyone who witnessed this incident is asked to contact Sutton Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. Police have released CCTV of the collision.
