They say the suspect, or suspects, stole electronics, money, credit cards and alcohol, which was sometimes consumed at the scene.

London police are also reminding the public to stay vigilant of their surroundings, and “if you see something, say something.”

They’re also encouraging people to report all suspicious activity.
