Men threaten cyclists as they ride along Gosport path

Have your say

TWO baseball bat-wielding robbers forced a man to hand over his bike before chasing after three other cyclists.

The 28-year-old victim was threatened by the pair with the metal bats as they emerged from bushes under the bridge under Rowner Road, Gosport.

The man, who was heading towards Gosport Leisure Centre, was told to empty his pockets but he did not have anything else on him.

Shortly after he handed over his bike, three cyclists rode past and the robbers chased after them.

The victim was able to retrieve his bike and flee. The incident happened about 8.35pm to 8.45pm on Thursday. Anyone with information should call 101.
