News | Cyclist robbed by two men in Ashford

Date Posted: 12th June 2017

Kent Police is appealing for witnesses after a cyclist was reportedly robbed by two men in Ashford.

The incident happened between 6.35pm and 6.50pm on Friday 5th May in an alleyway between Beaver Road and Bowens Field.

The victim, a man in his 30s, was riding home from work when a male cyclist allegedly stopped in front of him, causing the victim to lose balance and fall to the floor.

The male cyclist and a second man on a third bike then reportedly threatened the victim with violence before stealing his bicycle.

The victim described one of the suspects as white, of thin build, 5ft 9in, with a local accent and an earring. He was wearing a grey tracksuit top, and had short, spikey and fair-coloured hair, and was clean shaven.

The victim described the second suspect as dark skinned, between 5ft 10in and 5ft 11in, with a local accent. He was wearing a black puffer style jacket, jeans and had black wavy hair which was cut short on the sides, and dark stubble.

Kent Police is keen to speak to anyone with information about the incident or the identity of the suspects, as well as anyone who may have been offered a red Rock Hopper mountain bike for sale.

Witnesses are asked to call the appeal line on 01843 222289 quoting reference number ZY/18023/17. Alternatively, contact Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
