Robber hunted after stunt bike stolen

POLICE have released a CCTV still to help track down a youth who stole a stunt bike worth hundreds of pounds from a 13-year-old boy in Kimberworth.

Members of the public are being asked to identify the teenage suspect caught on camera at around 9pm on Fellowsfield Way on Wednesday June 2.

The victim was approached by the youth who asked to have a go on the bike.

When the victim refused, the youth pushed him off the bike and rode away towards the Superbowl on Wortley Road.

Police believe the offender ran through the Superbowl before leaving the area.

The youth is described as a white male, aged about 15-years-old, 5ft 6in tall with a slim build. He was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms and a dark top with a white logo on the front.

He was also wearing fawn coloured “rigger” boots and wore a black chequered bandana across half his face at the time of the incident.

The bike stolen is a specialist stunt bike worth several hundred pounds. It is an “ONZA” make and painted in black gloss, including the handlebars.

The handlebar grips are transparent and there is no seat, which is part of the design.

A similar bike to the one stolen is pictured.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who has information about this incident or who can identify the individual in the CCTV still.
