Appeal for Witnesses Following an Attempt Robbery in Netherfields, Middlesbrough

Police are appealing for information after a 55-year-old man was victim to an attempted robbery at a cash machine outside Sainsburys at Vaughn Shops in Netherfields, Middlesbrough.

The incident occurred at around 1:10am on Saturday 25th June when the victim was approached by a man who demanded money from him and waved a wooden implement at him.

A second man then took the victim’s bike but the victim managed to retrieve this on Fosdyke Green.

The victim was hit with the wooden item. He sustained minor injuries to his arm but did not receive medical treatment.

The second suspect who took the bike was wearing a light blue top.

Any witnesses or anyone with information regarding the incident or the identity of the suspects is asked to contact PC Lee Jarvis on the non-emergency number 101, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
