A cyclist has been attacked and robbed by two ‘Good Samaritans’ in a Northamptonshire village.
The victim was fixing a puncture on his bike on the Nene Valley Way cycle path near Ecton when he was asked by two men on a motorbike if he wanted help.
When he said no the pillion passenger pushed him over and demanded his phone and wallet but when the victim refused he stamped on his leg and threatened him with a weapon before stealling his watch and phone.
The pillion passenger is described as white, about 6ft, with a broad build and aged 18 to 20-years-old. He was wearing a grey tracksuit and tan Timberland-type boots. He had his hood up and a dark scarf over his face, and spoke with an English accent.
The other man was also white and was wearing blue jeans, a bright blue jacket and white Nike trainers. He also had his face covered and spoke with a Eastern European accent.
Witnesses, or anyone with information, are asked to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101.
