Rioters attack scooter rider

Published: 17 August 2011

Rioters have been caught on film dragging a rider off his scooter and stealing it.

The learner rider is seen being chased and grabbed around the neck as he tries to negotiate his way through rioting in Croydon, South London.

One thug then drags him away while another picks up the scooter and rides off. Seconds later the thief falls off and the owner runs towards him, only to be kicked in the back before he can reclaim his vehicle.
