Beechdale nurse robbed by three men
Updated on 14th November 2012
A nurse was pushed off her bike and robbed by three men as she cycled home following a shift at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre on Monday (12 November).
The robbers attacked her as she entered Radford Bridge Road at the Crown Island, on the border of Beechdale and Wollaton, as she cycled towards the railway bridge at around 11.30pm.
One of the offenders took her mobile phone and another took her rucksack, which contained her work uniform and paperwork. They then fled in the direction of Beechdale Road.
The victim, a 31-year-old Beechdale woman, was left with bruising to her body and grazing to her knees.
One of the men was black, in his late teens or early 20s, and wore dark clothing and a hooded top.
The other two men were white, in their late teens or early 20s, and also wore dark clothing.
Police would like to speak to anyone who has information about the incident; particularly a white man on a bicycle who the victim recalls passed the offenders in Radford Bridge Road just before the robbery.
Detective Constable Mike Ebbins said: “It would appear that the offenders targeted the victim for her mobile phone; however they were not satisfied with just the phone and were intent on using violence against their unsuspecting victim to get her bag as well.
“She is a nurse and had just finished a long shift at the hospital and this is the last thing she was expecting on her way home. She was injured and incredibly shaken by the incident and I would urge anyone who has information to please contact police and tell us what you know.”
Police would like to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have witnessed the attack or saw the offenders fleeing the scene.
Contact DC Ebbins at Oxclose Lane CID on 101 extension 803 4337 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
