11 Year Old Robbed At Knifepoint
Police in Luton are looking for witnesses after an 11 year old boy was robbed at knifepoint in the town.
The incident happened at 4.30pm on Saturday 6 April 2013 on a cycle track behind McDonald's on Bramingham Road which leads to Icknield Way/Neville Road and runs alongside the river Lea.
The victim was approached by an older boy who asked to use his bicycle and when the victim refused he was threatened with a knife.
The victim handed over his X-Rated Hustle BMX and the offender left the scene with it towards Marsh Farm.
The offender is described as black with a light complexion, approximately 15 years old, 5’5” tall, with a medium build. He wore a grey beanie hat, a black hooded top, black padded jacket and dark blue jeans.
The officer in charge of this investigation, DC Matt Shepherd, is keen to trace anyone who saw the incident or anyone who may have seen the victim’s bike in the area since Saturday.
DC Shepherd said: “The victim was brave but extremely frightened by what had happened to him. This incident happened in broad daylight and in a busy cut through that is used by a lot of people so it is possible that someone saw the offender in the area or has seen a similar bike recently. I would appeal to these people to come forward and assist with this investigation so we can all work together to help protect other young people within our communities.”
