Bournemouth: Female Cyclist Robbed At Knifepoint

Bournemouth detectives are looking for two men who robbed a woman cyclist at knifepoint in East Cliff.

It happened at around 9pm on Sunday 13 April 2014 by the subway along Lowther Gardens.
 
A 33-year-old Bournemouth woman was cycling along the road in the direction of Charminster from Holdenhurst Road when she was stopped by a woman asking her for the time.

When she became stationary two men pulled her to the floor, one held a knife to her ear while the other searched her and stole her mobile phone, keys and some cash.
 
The woman is described as white, of skinny build with light brown hair tied up behind her head with a fringe swept across her forehead. She was wearing a knee length black coat.
 
The first man is described as black, five feet five inches tall of medium build. He was wearing a black beanie hat.
 
The second man was white, five feet seven inches tall of skinny build and was also wearing a black beanie hat. He had a distinctive high pitched voice.
 
The victim sustained a minor facial injury during the attack.
 
Detective Constable Sara Johnson, of Bournemouth CID, said: 

“I am keen to speak to anyone who may have seen this incident but may not have been aware that a robbery was taking place.
 
“I urge witnesses and anyone with information to come forward as soon as possible.
 
“All calls are treated with the strictest confidence.”
 
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101.
