A YOUNG boy who had just learnt to ride a bike has had it stolen from his garden.
Thieves took a bike belonging to four-year-old Jesse Bawdon last week from outside his Stevenage home, meaning the youngster can no longer ride to school.
The Roebuck Infant and Nursery School pupil was given the bike, a 14in BMX Falcon worth about £100, for Christmas.
Mum Naomi Bawdon, of Valley Way, said: “He’s just learnt to ride the bike without his stabilisers and he had been riding to school. When the police came round he was asking them ‘are you going to find my bike now?’
“It’s just upsetting for him. You just don’t expect someone to take it, especially being a kid’s bike. He does love it and that’s what’s upsetting.

“If it’s teenagers that have taken it and just slung it into bushes somewhere hopefully someone has seen it and we can get it back.”
The bike, which has camouflage colours with black and white stars and a bag attached to the front (pictured), was stolen from the family’s front garden sometime overnight between Wednesday, March 20, and Thursday, March 21.
