Appeal for witness following attempted robbery

Alert message sent 10/07/2020 08:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery.

At around 4.30pm on Tuesday (7/7) a teenage boy was cycling on the redway that runs parallel to Calvie Croft, Hodge Lea, when he was approached by two men.

They threatened him and told him to hand over his bike. They then made the victim keep cycling and followed him.

When they reached the New Bradwell Sports and Social Club, the victim got off his bike, put it down and then ran away.

When the victim returned to the club later in the day his bike, a black Saracen Rage 700 mountain bike, was gone.

The first offender is described as a skinny white man in his early twenties who is approximately 5ft 10ins tall and spoke with a local British accent. He was wearing a black tracksuit with a white stripe running down the middle of the chest, a black baseball cap and blue latex gloves.

The second offender is described as a large white boy in his late teens with a birthmark below his left eye. He was wearing a red puffer jacket with the hood up, black tracksuit bottoms and black shoes.

If you recognise either of these descriptions or have any information about this offence, please get in touch using our online form or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43200205745.
Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously via their website or on 0800 555 111.
