A man was assaulted and a bike stolen during a knife-point robbery.

Police are appealing for witnesses and information after the victim was approached by three young men in Bond Street, Arnold, at around 7.15pm yesterday (Tuesday 15 September 2020).

The victim, who was cycling with another man, was reportedly struck over the head with a piece of wood, before having his bike, bag and house keys taken.

When the second man attempted to intervene, he is said to have been threatened with a large knife.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who witnessed what happened.

Detective Sergeant Charlotte Henson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a frightening incident that would have caused considerable distress to the victims. I am determined to find and arrest those responsible as quickly as possible. If you have any information please call us on 101 quoting incident number 702 of 15 September.”
