A BOY was robbed of his bicycle at knifepoint by a pair of muggers on Hampstead Heath on Saturday (August 29).

The victim, 12, was riding near the Gospel Oak athletics track when two older teenagers approached him, produced the blade and pushed him off his bicycle.

It is believed the suspects left the park with the bicycle and turned into Gordon House Road, then Mansfield Road and finally Oak Village.

The first suspect was a black man aged about 16 or 17, 5ft 8ins tall, and was of medium build.

He was wearing a white T-shirt with a logo in the centre, black tracksuit bottoms and had receding black hair, and a soft voice with a London accent.

He had scars on his face near his chin, on his cheek and next to his left eye.

The second suspect was aged between 15 and 17, of mixed race, 5ft 6ins tall and fat, and was wearing a black hooded top with blue writing on the front.

He also had dark brown tracksuit bottoms and white All-Star trainers. He had short light brown hair with a loud voice and an American accent.

Anyone with information should call police on 020-7404 1212 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
