A man has pushed a woman off her rare electric unicycle and then stolen it in Southend.

Southend unicycle

It happened at the junction of York Road and Albert Road at around 6.25pm on Monday, 23 November.

The woman was left shaken but not hurt.

She said: "There are only 30 of this make and model in the country.

"It’s that rare, it will be easy to spot if it came up for sale."

The unicycle's mechanism means that when it tilts over, it makes a constant beeping noise, and this was set off when the robber stole it.

Investigating officer Dc Dan Hedges, of Southend CID, said: "It weighs 16kg so would not have gone far and would stand out like a sore thumb. "

The suspect was described as white, aged about 18 and of skinny build. He had stubble on his face and wore a black beanie hat, jacket and trousers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dc Hedges on 101.
