Appeal for information following robbery of bike from teenage boy in Southport

Detectives are appealing for information following the robbery of a bike from a teenage boy in Southport in January.

At 3.45pm on Wednesday 30 January, a 14-year-old boy was cycling through Southport Cemetery on Duke Street when he was approached by an unknown person who punched him and forced him from the bike, before stealing it.

The suspect is described as wearing dark clothing with a hood up. Enquiries are ongoing.

The bike is a Cannondale mountain bike with a sprayed black frame and yellow shock absorber. Since the image was taken, the handlebars are now gold in colour, and the seat is now black and gold.

Detective Inspector Yoseph Al-Ramadhan said: “For a young teenager to be threatened and assaulted in broad daylight and have his property stolen is absolutely appalling and I’m sure people within the local community share our disgust and outrage.

“Did you see this incident or have any CCTV or dashcam footage of the suspect making off? Have you been offered or seen for sale a similar Cannondale mountain bike in recent days, or seen anyone riding it in the area?

“Come forward and we will take positive action on all information received to identify the person responsible and bring them to justice.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the social media desk @MerPolCC, call 101 with reference 19100030365 or the independent charity @CrimestoppersUK anonymously, on 0800 555 111. You can also use their online form at: https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information/give-information.
