We have issued CCTV images of two males who could assist with enquiries into the robbery of a teenager’s bike in Liverpool last month.
A report was received on 10 May that a 14-year-old boy who had been riding his bike on Smithdown Road was approached by two males at around 4pm that day.
One of the offenders demanded the boy hand over his bike and threatened to assault him. The boy handed over his bike and the offenders made off from the scene.
While the boy was not injured, he was left extremely shaken by the incident.
Detective Inspector Judith Blease said: “The boy was left extremely shaken by this ordeal.
“The boy’s distress about being threatened in this way was compounded by the fact he had saved up to buy the bike with money given to him at Christmas.
“We urge anyone who recognises the boys in the images we have released to contact us, as we believe they could have information that could prove vital to our enquiries.
“Also, if you think you may have seen the bike since the incident or have been offered the bike for sale, please get in touch."
Anyone who recognises the males pictured or have seen the bike is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook Merseyside Police CC.
