Ricky Hayden, 27, was stabbed to death trying to stop a gang of thieves that were stealing a moped outside his home in Chadwell Heath, a residential area in east London. Paul, Ricky’s father, tried to help and got wounded too, but he survived the attack and is recovering in a hospital.

The bike belongs to Bella Tasci, 34, who had built it himself along with his younger brother Perry. He said a gang had been hanging around the neighborhood, and the Hayden family dog had also been slashed in the attack.

"Everyone at the council is devastated by the news of this horrendous, senseless crime,” chief executive of Havering Council Andrew Blake-Herbert said. “Our condolences and thoughts are with Ricky’s family and friends. Our prayers are also with his father who remains in hospital.”

It looks like bike thieves have hone completely mad these days. And they seem to do so in a city best known for its huge array of surveillance cameras. Even so, they have the courage to stop riders in traffic and scare them away to take their motorcycle, as it almost happened with YouTube vlogger RoyalJordanian recently.

Other bastards had the nerve to make a whole scene in an underground parking lot by cutting down the chain and the disc lock on an expensive bike using, wait for it - power tools. And they didn’t care that another biker was filming the whole ‘operation’ and was desperately trying to raise attention over their illegal work. In fact, one of them attacked the poor fellow and threw acid at him.
