Witnesses Sought After
Robbery in Stevenage
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
The victim then began to chase after the second offender, who
was on foot, towards the roundabout at the junction with St
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.

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.
