The man is suspected of having approached Former RAF pilot Craig Stevens, 51, faking his intentions to help, and reportedly stole £40 in (€50 or $70) in cash while pretending to provide the first aid. Stevens was riding his Triumph Bonneville in Hayes, west London, when he collided with a silver Audi near a Lidl supermarket.

He was admitted into the St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington where he undergone two surgeries and a skin graft.

A bystander cyclist recorded some footage with his helmet-mounted camera, and caught an image of the suspect. The police are now looking for more evidence from potential witnesses, as reports say some of those present have taken photos with their phones, as well. Police constable Raj Patara says the “51-year-old male motorcyclist was laying on the road heavily bleeding when the man caught on camera rushed in to help with first aid. Once police arrived at the scene the man left immediately. Shortly afterwards the injured man realised that his money -£40 in cash that had been in his pocket - had been stolen,” visordown reports.

Police data refers to a slim, light-skinned black man in his 30’s, wearing tan shorts, and orange checkered shirt and a reversed baseball cap, and who spoke with a very strong West Indian accent.
