A 13 year old school boy was attacked by two youths who then stole his bike. The robbery took place on Tuesday 29th November 2005 at 18.00 close to the victim's home in Foster Road. 

Whilst he cycled home from Turnham Green Station, across Chiswick Common and down Elliot Road, he noticed another bike with one male riding it and another male on the handlebars but didn’t think they were following him. 

However, as he neared his home, the first assailant, who had been sitting on the bike's handlebars jumped on his back pushing him to the ground and kicked him before making off with his bike. Though the victim wasn't seriously hurt, he was left badly shaken.

The first assailant is described as a youth about 15 years old, 5’ 7”, wearing a dark hooded top and dark jogging bottoms with three white stripes. Skin colour unknown.

The second youth is described as being about 14 years old, 5’ 1”, heavy build with a tummy, wearing a dark hooded top and dark jogging bottoms.

The bike they were riding is described as a white mountain bike, make unknown.
