A man had his bike and money stolen when he was mugged.

At 6.20pm on Wednesday, February 27, a 21-year-old man, was cycling along Park Street in the alleyway in Woodcutter Place, St Albans, when he was approached by four males who took his bike and cash.

The gang then made off in the direction of Tippendell Lane.

The victim was not injured during the incident.

Detective Constable Paul Edmondson, who is investigating, said: “Have you seen this bike or been offered it for sale? It’s a blue Boardman mountain bike and I’d like to hear from anyone who thinks they have seen it.

“I would also like to hear from any witnesses to the robbery or anyone who has information about it.

“If you can help, please get in touch on the non-emergency number 101 or through email at paul.edmondson@herts.pnn.police.uk quoting crime reference 41/19198/19.”
