We are asking for the public’s help after a man was robbed of his electric bike by a pair of motorcycle riding youths.
The robbery happened in Babington Lane, Derby, at around 3.40pm on Tuesday (26 September).
The victim, a man in his 30s, was followed by the pair of teenagers from Macklin Street, onto Green Lane in the direction of Milestone House, before he turned on to Babington Lane.
As he reached the pedestrian crossing close to Speedys Wheels and Tyres the pillion rider, who was wearing a bright yellow helmet, jumped from the bike, threatened the man with a knife, before stamping on his head leaving him with significant bruising.
The pair of youths then rode off on the bikes down Babington Lane towards the city.
