POLICE officers have released CCTV images of two men they would like to identify after an off-road bike was robbed at knifepoint.

A 25-year-old man was riding the bike along Mill Road, Treeton, on Saturday, December 1, at around 1.30pm when he was approached by two men, one of whom was carrying a knife, a spokeswoman for South Yorkshire Police said.

"The men then threatened the victim before taking his bike," said the spokeswoman.

"The victim was not injured during the incident.

"His bike is described as a blue and white-coloured Yamaha Y280 2001 field bike."

Police said they had searched the area and carried out house-to-house enquiries since the incident.

Anyone who recognises the men should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 quoting incident number 511 of December 1, 2018.
