Police in Hadfield are appealing for information after a cycle was stolen from outside a takeaway food shop.
The incident happened at around 5.20pm on Saturday, November 19.
A 19-year-old man had stopped outside the shop, on Station Road, when he was approached by a man who jumped on the bike and cycled off.
He headed towards the roundabout at the bottom of Station Road, and onto Waterside, before turning around and was last seen riding past near the New Lamb pub.
The offender is described as white, in his twenties, around 6ft tall and of a thin build. He had shaved fair hair and was wearing a white top, with a blue sweater tied around his neck and dark tracksuit bottoms.
PC Gareth Podmore of the Hadfield and Tintwistle Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team has been making enquiries. He said: “I would urge anyone who may have seen this incident or has any information to come forward. This bike is quite distinctive and of a high value.”
The owner has provided a photograph of the white Cannondale Jekyll mountain bike.
Anyone with information should contact Derbyshire police on 101, the new non-emergency number or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
