Updated on 6th November 2012
A group of men attacked a 14-year-old boy for his bike.
It happened at around 7pm on Sunday 21 October 2012 near the Cancer Research shop in Main Street, Bulwell.
The boy was riding through the market place when three men approached him.
He was punched in the face, which caused him to fall to the floor. One of the men then rode off with his bike towards Bulwell Bus Station. The second man was riding another BMX-style bike and the third man fled on foot.
Two of the three attackers are described as white. They are all around 5ft 6ins tall, of normal build and wearing dark tracksuits with the hoods pulled over their faces.
The stolen bike is a vintage GT performer BMX. It has been resprayed chrome and there are a few black marks where stickers used to be on the frame.
The wheels are black with three spokes. The word ‘GT’ appears in white on each spoke.
The bike has no rear stunt pegs, as they are on the front and act as the wheel nut. It has the original black GT seat.
Witnesses or anyone who knows the whereabouts of the bike or has any information should contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
