The second bike was stolen during a robbery on the Grand Union Canal towpath near Little Heath Lane at around 2.55pm. A 12-year-old boy was approached by two boys, aged between 13 and 15, who took the bike from him and made off with it. The bike is described as an orange ‘Specialised Pitch’ mountain bike.

It is believed that the two same suspects are responsible for both offences and therefore they may still be using the pedal cycles together.
