Teen cyclist threatened with knife by men wearing bandanas

St Catherine’s Road in Frimley

A teenager was threatened with a knife by two bandana-wearing men who tried to steal his bicycle.

The suspects, one of them also on a bike, approached the 16-year-old as he was cycling home from a friend's house in Frimley.

One of the offenders punched the boy in the chest and held a knife at him.

The "nasty attack" happened off St Catherine’s Road heading towards Tomlinscote Woods, just after 9.30pm on Wednesday May 27.

Detective Constable Emily Clarke has happealed for witnesses to come forward, including a group of soldiers who may have been out running in the area around the time.

“Fortunately the boy was able to make his escape by cycling home, but there is no doubt this was a nasty attack that has left him badly shaken," DC Clarke said.

"[It] could have had even worse consequences if it wasn’t for the fact that for some reason the offenders made a hasty escape."

The first suspect was described as white, approximately 6ft tall, of stocky build and wearing a black hooded top, a black bandana and black tracksuit bottoms.

The second man was also white, around 5ft 10in tall, of skinny build and also wearing a black hooded top, a black bandana and black tracksuit bottoms.

Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to contact Surrey Police on 101, quoting reference number 45150044781, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
