Police have issued the  image of a high-value bike stolen in a robbery in Old Swan last Thursday, 10 May.

At around 3.05pm, the male teenage victim was riding his bicycle home from school at the junction of Quarry Road with Quarry Close. He was approached by two youths in dark clothing, one of whom grabbed the handlebars, causing the victim to fall off. He was held down and both youths rode off down Quarry Road. The victim was uninjured but left extremely distressed.

Santa Cruz Hightower

The bike is a Santa Cruz Hightower CC XT 659, which is a specialist downhill bike.

CCTV and witness enquiries are ongoing and anyone who witnessed the incident or has been offered the bike, is urged to come forward.

Detective Inspector Terry Davies said: “This was a despicable robbery which has left the victim understandably shocked and upset. To target a young teenage boy for his prized possession in such a way beggars belief and I would urge anyone with information to get in touch.

“You may have been passing on foot or in a vehicle around 3.05pm and have dashcam footage, or remember seeing the incident itself. Please let us know.

“If you have been offered this distinctive bike for sale or seen it advertised in any store or online, do the right thing and come forward so we can reunite the bike with its rightful owner. Any information provided will be acted on and we are determined to find those responsible.”

Anyone with information can contact @MerPolCC, call 101 quoting reference number 18200096797 or @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111.
