A Greenwich man was left feeling “angry and sick” after brazen thieves were filmed stealing his £2,000 electric bike in broad daylight.

A teen dressed in black used an axel grinder to remove the lock from Adem Lakeman’s bike outside Surrey Quays shopping centre at around 1.30pm on November 6.

The 31-year-old, who works as a sales assistant for Cycles UK, was shocked to find the thieves had been filmed in the act.

He said: “I left it for around half an hour visiting a friend who works at GAME inside the centre who had just returned from isolation.

“I learnt about the theft after I returned to my bike and saw my lock in the floor in two pieces.

“The value of the bike was around £2000. I was using it for travelling to physio appointments and work as I am recovering from two herniated disc’s in my lower back.

“I felt angry and sick after seeing the two thieves touching my bike. It made me wonder about who the hell raised them to be acting like that.

“It’s not been a great year for me to be honest. With family passing away from COVID, mental health problems and my family being tormented by my racist and homophobic neighbours.”

The footage was captured by Martin Pelant, who can be heard asking "is that your bike?" throughout, as onlookers stand by. 

Police are yet to make any arrests in relation to the incident.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: "On Saturday, November 6 at 1.32pm police were called to a report of a bike theft at Surrey Quays Shopping Centre.

"Officers attended and conducted initial enquiries. No arrests; enquiries continue.

"Anyone with information that could assist is asked to contact police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD3931/06NOV."
