Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a robbery in which a man had his bicycle stolen on Sunday.

At about 2.30am, a 25-year-old man, was cycling along the Railway Walk Red Way towards the M1 Bridge in Newport Pagnell when he was pushed to the floor.

The bike fell on top of him and then it was taken from him by the offender, who appeared to be a man, and he cycled away along the Red Way towards Stantonbury.

The bike is a nearly new black and white men’s Shimano mountain bike with frame number WSBC60227500F.

The victim saw two other people, who he believes are men, standing on the Red Way, but they were not connected with the taking of the bike.

All three people seemed to be of average height and build and were all dressed in dark clothing.

Detective Constable Wendy Cissell from Milton Keynes police station said. “I would like to hear from the two people who were closer to the incident and I urge them to come forward as any information would be useful in our investigation.

“If you know someone who has suspiciously acquired a mountain bike or if you have been offered parts for sale fitting the above description, contact police.”

Anyone with information should call the Thames Valley Police 24-hour non-emergency single number 101 and ask to speak to Det Con Cissell.
