Police hunt for cycling robbers

Police are appealing for information about a robbery by two hooded cyclists in Stevenage.

Officers want to speak to anyone who saw or has information about a robbery on Mobbsbury Way at 6.45pm on Friday January 14 when two men on mountain bikes threatened to stab a 17 and 18-year-old, forcing them to hand over their mobile phones. The two robbers then rode off.

The first offender is white, of slim build, aged 18 or 19. He was wearing a black hoody, possibly with a Nike tick, with the hood up, and black jogging bottoms.

The second is of around the same age with a dark hoody, also with the hood up, and a scarf hiding his face.

If you can help, call 0845 3300222 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111. Quote E1/11/340 on both numbers.
