Appeal after woman pushed and her bike stolen in Nottingham

A woman is alleged to have been pushed by a man who stole her bike.

Detectives investigating the robbery have released an image of the bike and have appealed for anyone who has any information on what happened to come forward.

The incident is believed to have taken place at around 7.40pm on Monday 2 August while the victim travelled along Penllech Walk in Bestwood.

The woman is alleged to have been approached by a man who asked to look at her bike.

He is then reported to have pushed her away from it before riding off on it.

The suspect is described as mixed race, of average build and approximately 5ft 9ins tall.

He was wearing a black tracksuit with a black hooded top along with a dark-coloured woolly hat.

He was also reported to be clean shaven.

Detective Constable Steven Willetts, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This incident would have undoubtedly been terrifying for the victim who has now been left without her bike.

“We are asking anyone who may have seen the incident, the bike or someone matching the description we have released in the area at the time of the incident to come forward.

“Any information you have, no matter how insignificant you think it may be, could go a long way to helping solve who did this.”

Anyone who has information should contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 732 of 2 August 2021.
