Detectives investigating a report of a robbery in a Nottinghamshire park have arrested a teenager in connection with the incident.
Nottinghamshire Police received a report that two 16-year-old boys were threatened by two male suspects at the Manor Farm Recreation Ground in Toton before they took their bicycles.
The suspects threatened to stab the victims although no knives were seen during the incident.
Neither of the victims were injured during their ordeal which happened at around 5.50pm yesterday (Monday 29 March 2021).
Following enquiries detectives arrested a 16-year-old boy last night on suspicion of robbery who remains in custody.
Detective Sergeant Charlotte Henson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We take all reports of robbery very seriously and we are working hard to trace and arrest the outstanding suspect believed to be involved in this incident.
“Thankfully no injuries were sustained but this robbery would have undoubtedly been terrifying for the victims who had their black B’Twin and black Carrera bikes taken.
“We are currently following a number of lines of enquiry and to help us with our investigation I am asking anyone who witnessed this incident, or who has any information which could assist us with our enquiries, to please get in touch.
“We would also like to hear from you if you have any information about the whereabouts of these bikes, if you have been offered a bike similar to those described for sale or if you know someone who is suddenly in possession of a new bike.”
If you have any information please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 708 of 29 March 2021, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
