POLICE have released an efit of a man they want to speak to following a robbery in Gosport.

As previously reported in The News, a 28-year-old man was cycling under the bridge on Rowner Road when he was approached by two men with baseball bats.

They threatened the victim and told him to empty his pockets. They took his bike as he had nothing else on him.

Shortly after the theft, which happened on December 3 between 8.35pm and 8.45pm, three other men cycled by and were chased by the suspects. The first victim was able to take back his bike and leave.

One of the suspects was white, around 18-years-old, 5ft six inches tall and skinny. He was wearing a navy blue tracksuit, with Adidas bottoms, white trainers and a hat. He was carrying an aluminium baseball bat.

The second man, pictured, was white, about 22-years-old, 6ft tall with a gaunt face and very thin nose. He was wearing a light-grey tracksuit and a woolly hat, with a red stripe around it. He was also carrying an aluminium baseball bat.

Anyone with information should call 101.
