A cyclist has been robbed of cash after two men pulled him from his bike and kicked him.


The 55 year old man was cycling along St James Road near Moor Park on Friday 26 September.

Preston Police say he was pulled from his bike around 11pm and fell to the floor.

Two men then set upon him and kicked him, and a third man could have searched his pockets.

The men took £30 from the victim’s pockets.

The cyclist was left with minor injuries to his face, body and wrist, but as he had recently undergone a double hip replacement it left him unable to move properly for some time.

One of the men is described as an Asian or mixed race male, of a medium build, 6ft tall and aged 19-20 years. He was wearing a thin black waterproof hooded jacket, black tracksuit bottoms and a distinctive gold ring on his finger which was square in shape.

A second man is described as an Asian or mixed race male, of a stocky build, 5ft 8 to 5ft 9 tall and thought to be in his mid to late 20s. He was wearing a hooded fleecy jacket and grey tracksuit bottoms.

DC Justin Singleton of Preston CID said: “I am appealing for anyone who may have witnessed this incident to get in touch and anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting DF1408326.”

Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
