The victim, a 13 year old schoolboy, was stopped by a light skinned black youth, about 18 years old, who was riding a grey pushbike with red lettering on it.

The suspect then walked off with both bikes and was spotted walking past Fullers Brewery.

He was described as about 6 foot tall with shaven head and a deep voice. He had big lips, a big nose and was wearing a black Barbour jacket and jeans.

The victim’s bike was a silver Apollo mountain bike, valued at around £150.
