Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses after a boy was allegedly robbed in Alfreton.
At about 8.15pm on Monday 11 April, a 15-year-old boy was pushing his moped along the pavement of Derby Road, close to the Watchorn Island, when he was approached by two people.
They demanded his moped and one suspect is said to have punched the victim in the face before stealing the black and dark green Piaggio moped.
One youth is described as about 5ft tall and he wore a green coat with the hood up and a black hat underneath. The other suspect is about 6ft tall and he wore a black padded coat and black trainers.
A passing motorist stopped just after the incident and asked the victim if he was alright. We would like to speak to this man, or to anyone else who may have witnessed what happened, or recorded it on their dash cam.
A 23-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of robbery, questioned and released on bail while inquiries continue.
