TWO men knocked a teenage boy off his bike in a violent robbery in Old Town.

The 14-year-old rode his bike around Bruddle Grove at around 8.30pm on Friday when the two men approached him, pushed him, then punched and kicked him before stealing his bike.

The stolen bike is a dark grey Carerra Vengence which is just over a year old.

The suspects are described as male, white, aged in their early 20’s. One man was wearing a dark grey tracksuit and grey jumper.
