One of our Safer Neighbourhood officers is asking for the public’s help after an 11-year-old boy was allegedly robbed of his bike in Littleover, Derby. 

The incident happened at around 2.20pm on Halloween, Wednesday, October 31 on Uplands Avenue, near the footpath that runs past St George’s primary and Ridgeway Infants schools, Littleover, Derby. 

The victim was approached by another boy, who is described as being around 14-years-of-age and ‘black with a deep voice’. The older boy then took the younger boy’s Carrera bike (pictured) and rode off on it towards Willson Avenue. 

The robbery is being investigated by PC Richard Barker, who said: “ I would like to get justice for this young victim who, although unhurt, was clearly shaken by what happened. 

“If anyone saw the offence taking place, has seen the bike since the incident or knows something about it then I would really like them to make contact with me.” 

The suspect was said to be wearing a grey hoody hat was over his head, a black Karrimor coat over the hoody and black and blue Adidas trainers.
