Robbers steal cyclist's bike in Western Boulevard, Leicester
Two cyclists threatened another rider before making off with his bike.
The two robbers blocked the cyclist’s path as he cycled along Western Boulevard, near Bede Park, in Leicester’s West End at 4.15pm on Saturday.
One of them tried to push the victim off his bike. The pair then threatened him and ordered him to get off the cycle – a black, grey and white Raleigh Metro GTX Hybrid.

The other man has a darker complexion, is a similar age and was wearing a black puffer-style coat with the hood up and pulled tight around his face.
