A BOY was robbed of his bike by two attackers.

The 13-year-old was cycling near the Co-op funeral directors in Dunsbury Way, Leigh Park, when the robbery happened between 6.30pm and 6.45pm last Saturday.

The boy was approached by two older youths, who pushed him off his bike and stole it along with a set of keys from his pocket.

The bike is a white Dunlop BMX push bike with distinctive pink spray paint on the main frame.

DC Kate Smithers, from Waterlooville CID, said: ‘This was an unprovoked attack on a young person making his way home.

‘Dunsbury Way where the incident occurred is a busy location and I appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and is able to provide any information to come forward.’

The offenders were 15 to 16 years of age, both white with dark hair. One was around 6ft, of muscular build, wearing a black hooded top with dark blue tracksuit bottoms. The other was slightly shorter, of large build, with blonde tips in his hair, and wore a white hooded top and dark-coloured tracksuit bottoms. Call 101.
