Police are renewing an appeal for witnesses after an 18-year-old woman was the victim of a hit and run.
On June 6 at 9.30pm, a man and a woman was walking along a street when they saw two men riding on a moped, coming out of an alleyway from Cherry Tree Close into Cherry Tree Walk, Rainham.
As the men drove past, a short exchange took place where one of the men threatened to run the pair over.
The moped was then deliberately driven at them and collided with the woman, knocking her to the ground unconscious.
The men then left the scene, driving off into an alleyway towards Cherry Tree Close.
The victim was taken to an east London hospital where she was treated for minor injuries and was later discharged.
