POLICE are searching for two men after a 14-year-old was robbed of his bike last Tuesday.

Just after 6pm on August 30, the victim and his young brother were approached by two men who had been riding on a red, black and white pit motorcycle for a while near the over-bridge between Furzton Lake and Bowl.

The passenger on the pit bike threatened the victim and demanded he hand over his white Haro Forum BMX bike.

One of the offenders, the passenger on the pit bike, is white, about 16 or 17 years old, 5ft 7ins, large build, wide shoulders and he was wearing a sky-blue bandana with white markings, grey hood and grey tracksuit bottoms.

The other offender, riding the pit bike, is mixed race, about 16 or 17 years old, about 5ft 9ins, slim build, wearing red and white dirt bike style helmet with black goggles, black dirt bike clothes with white and red on them.

There was a third man standing and watching in the background and he left with the suspects in the direction of Coffee Hall.

Det Con Sam Reynolds from Milton Keynes police station said: “The victim bought the bicycle using his birthday money and he was saddened to hand it over. The younger brother of the victim was also quite distraught.

“There was a couple walking nearby at the time the robbery happened. We would like them to come forward, as well as anyone who saw the suspects on their pit motorcycle around the time of the incident.

“I would like also ask anyone who has been offered a bike or parts that fit the above description to contact police.

“People need to note the frame number of their bikes; the number is vital in identifying the bike in case it gets stolen.”

Anyone with information about this incident should contact Det Con Reynolds via the Thames Valley Police’s 24-hour Enquiry Centre on 0845 8 505 505.
