He has since faced a children's court where he was remanded in custody

The charges come a week after 40-year-old Prahran man was attacked while on Malvern Road, near the intersection of Essex Street, shortly after 11pm on September 18.

The injured man was taken to hospital where he died.

It prompted police to issue an appeal for the rider of a motorised scooter and the driver of a white van, who were both captured on CCTV on Malvern Road at the same time as the teen, to come forward.

The footage showed the scooter rider striking the teen after he steps in front of it, while the white van drives past the teen and the victim during their altercation.

Police are still looking for those two people and appealing for them to come forward.
