Police are appealing for witnesses to a robbery on Lutterworth Road, Leicester.
At about 8.30pm on Saturday 9 July, near to the junction of Gilmorton Avenue, a teenage boy, was chased by two men who pushed him to the pavement before stealing his bicycle.
One of the suspects threatened the victim with a knife, but no weapon was seen. The boy was not injured but was left understandably distressed by his ordeal.
A description of the suspects has been given. The first man is said to be white with a tanned complexion, 5ft 7ins tall, slim but muscular build, about 18-years-old, and clean-shaven apart from a very thin moustache. He was wearing a red jumper, a red and blue baseball cap with white lettering and had a blue Nike satchel with him.
The second man is described as black, 5ft 8ins to 5ft 10ins tall, about 19-years-old, medium build with short hair. He was wearing a grey hooded top with Nike written in white across the chest and matching grey bottoms.
The bicycle is a grey Carrera Vengeance mountain bike with red stripes.
If you were in the vicinity of Lutterworth Road and saw the incident or two men matching these descriptions, we would like to hear from you.
Contact 101 and speak to PC 1017 Gill, quoting incident 16000186609.
