08/02/2017

 

Police in Stevenage are appealing for witnesses and information following a robbery in the town.

 

At around 11pm on Tuesday February 8, a 37 year old man was cycling home along the cycle path adjacent to Six Hills Way near to the bus stop by ASDA, when he was approached by two men. As he drew level with them one of the men pushed him off his bike and rode off on it.

 

The victim then began to chase after the second offender, who was on foot, towards the roundabout at the junction with St George’s Way.
 
DC Kirsty Richardson, who is investigating the incident said: “There would still have been people around the area at this time and we are hoping that someone may have seen the incident or the victim pursuing the offender.

 

“Fortunately the victim was not seriously hurt when he was pushed from the bike and these kinds  of incidents are not common in the town.”

 

The stolen bike is described as a bright orange Falcon mountain bike. It had Falcon written in black on the down tube.

 

One of the offenders was wearing a distinctive baby blue jacket with a red letter ‘V’ on the back. The other offender was a white man dressed in dark clothing.

 

If you think you have seen the offenders and were in the area around the time of the incident, officers would like to speak to you as you may have vital information that could help the investigation. Please contact DC Kirsty Richardson on 101 quoting crime reference number E1/17/990.
