February 6, 2018

Police officers are appealing for witnesses after the attempted robbery of a ten-year-old boy in Northampton Lane South, Moulton, Northampton.

The incident happened on Friday, January 26, between 4.10pm and 4.30pm, when the boy and his friends were riding their bicycles in Northampton Lane South and a vehicle pulled over near them. 

A man got out of the rear passenger seat, pulled the boy off his bicycle and kicked him as he lay on the ground. The man then demanded that the boy give him his bicycle but was then disturbed by a member of the public. The man got back into the car and drove off in the direction of Moulton Lane.

The offender is described as a white man, 6ft tall, of slim build with muscular arms. He was aged 25-30, clean shaven and had an Eastern European accent. He was wearing a grey Nike hooded top with the hood up, blue jeans and was carrying a black leather bag. The vehicle is described as a silvery blue estate with a lot of tools in the back. There were four men in the vehicle in total and the driver is described as olive skinned. 

Witnesses, or anyone with any information, should contact Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
