Two people have been charged with the murder of a sixteen-year-old in Croydon last week. 

Eighteen-year-old Romain La Pierre, from Amber Grove in Cricklewood, was arrested in the west midlands on Saturday. 

A fifteen-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested in East Sussex on Friday. 

Both have been remanded in custody to appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court today (July 6). They have also been charged with robbery.

Police found sixteen-year-old Camron Smith in Bracken Avenue at 12.46am on Thursday, July 1. He was suffering from a stab injury and died a short time later after being treated at the scene by London Ambulance Service paramedics. 

Detectives are still appealing for anyone with information to come forward; either by calling the incident room on 0208 721 4961 or contacting Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
