Two men threatened to stab a teenager and stole his bike in an alleyway.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident which happened at around 4pm on Sunday, July 22 off Notley Road, Lowestoft.
Suffolk Police said a teenage boy was stopped by two men who demanded the boy handed over his bike and threatened to hurt him if he refused.
The men then stole the bike and left the scene, leaving the boy “very shaken” by the incident.
It is understood the boy was told he would be stabbed if he did not hand over the silver Conveyance bike, but police said no weapon was found.
The men are described as white, between 5ft 10in and 6ft tall, and in their 20s of slim build. One of the men had a ginger goatie and was wearing a black hooded Adidas tracksuit with three white stripes down the sides.
The other man was wearing jeans and a black jumper.
