Witness Appeal Following Robbery in Tring

Living Magazines Police Appeal

Police are appealing for witnesses and information after a group of males robbed a teenager of his bicycle and designer trainers in Tring.

Between 6.15pm and 6.45pm on Saturday 17 June, the 17-year-old victim was cycling along Northfield Road, towards Station Road, when he was struck on the head from behind.

A group of males pushed him off his blue pedal bike and kicked him while shouting threats. They stole his bicycle and white Adidas Yeezy trainers and fled in the direction of Station Road. The victim sustained a cut to the back of his head, cuts and bruising to his face and a swollen left eye. He flagged down a passer-by for help raising the alarm.

DC Simon Marskell, from Dacorum Local Crime Unit, is investigating, said: ‘The young victim has been left understandably shaken, with nasty cuts and bruises after this frightening robbery. I’d like to hear from anyone who witnessed this incident or who may have information about it, especially drivers with dashcam footage, who captured the offence as they passed.

‘If you can help, I can be contacted directly by email via simon.marskell@herts.police.uk.’
