A vulnerable man is thought to have been targeted by a robber who threatened him with a knife, stole his valuables and sped off on a bike.
Police are searching for a teenager wanted in connection with the robbery in Greenwich.
Officers want to trace Marc Cameron, 17, of Greenwich, in connection with the armed robbery on March 27.
At around 4.30pm officers were called to Allenby Road after a 20-year-old man was robbed of his possessions at knife point.
The man was walking back from a trip to the shop when he was approached, threatened with a knife and robbed of his phone, cash and bank card.
The suspect then left the scene on a bike, leaving the victim frightened and in a state of shock.
Acting Police Sergeant Matt Taylor, said: “This is a truly shocking crime. We believe the victim, who is now afraid to leave the house, was specifically targeted due to his vulnerabilities.
“If you have information as to Marc Cameron’s whereabouts, I ask you to contact us. I am also appealing directly to Marc, to please attend your nearest police station.”
Anyone who knows of Cameron’s whereabouts is asked to call police immediately (999 in an emergency) quoting CAD 4760/27 March.
