Knifepoint robbery gang hunted after stealing off-road bikes from Arnold


A gang of youths who threatened two men at knifepoint and stole their off-road bikes are being hunted by police.

It happened at around 6.25pm on (Saturday (May 4) as the victims were walking with their bikes along Bestwood Lodge Drive.

Police said a group of about six or seven boys, who were wearing face coverings and dark-coloured clothing, approached the victims. One of the offenders threatened one of the victims with a knife before his bike was taken.

The same offender then approached the second victim who was punched by another of the suspects. He let go of his bike before the offenders rode off on the bikes.

The bikes, as pictured, are a green Kawasaki KX80 and a yellow Suzuki RM85. Both bikes have kick start engines not requiring a key.

The suspects are described as being two black youths and the others white youths, all aged between 13 and 18.

Detective Sergeant Luke Todd said: “Our investigation is ongoing, including house-to-house enquiries and exploring CCTV opportunities.

“We’re appealing for anyone with any information about the incident and anyone who may know of the whereabouts of these distinctive bikes to get in contact with us by calling 101.

“We believe the bikes have been seen in the Bulwell area since the incident so we’d urge anyone who may have seen them to get in touch.”
