Boy Held At Knifepoint By Bike Robbers

A boy had his bicycle robbed from him at knifepoint after it was grabbed as he rode down a Coventry street.

The 14-year-old was cycling in Swan Lane, Hillfields at 5.30pm when a youth stepped out in front of him and grabbed the handlebars.

He threatened the frightened lad, and a second offender appeared with a knife and also made threats.

They took the bicycle, a red and grey Shogun Axis mountain bike worth 250, away from the boy, who was left uninjured but terrified by the experience.

Both offenders are black aged 17 or 18. One is 5ft 6ins and wore a black woollen hat, a green and black jacket and black boots.

The second attacker is 5ft 8ins, slim and had a navy blue bomber jacket and cream jeans.

Witnesses should call 024 7653 9010.
