Posted on 31st January 2017

We are appealing for information following an attempted robbery in Pride Park, Derby.

At around 1.25pm on Sunday, January 29, three teenage boys, two aged 14 and one aged 15, were walking along Derwent Parade in Pride Park, Derby when two teenagers passed them on bikes.

The teenagers stopped in front of the group and demanded that they dropped their rucksacks.

The teenagers then turned around and ran off whilst the offenders made off along the riverside path, in the direction of Alvaston.

One of the offenders was described as white, aged 16-18-years-old, 6ft tall and of a lean build. He wore a plain black baseball cap facing forward, a balaclava with white markings near the nose area, a waterproof black coat, black tracksuit bottoms, and carried a red Adidas bag on his hip. He rode a black and white mountain bike with straight handlebars and no front brake.

The second offender was white, 16-18-years-old, of stocky build and around 5ft 8ins tall. He wore a black baseball cap and a black balaclava which had a white logo around the nose area. He also wore a light black coat, black tracksuit bottoms and black trainers. He was on a black BMX style bike, which had a slightly flat rear tyre, low seat, and no front brake.
