Officers are appealing for witnesses after another cyclist in Richmond Park was robbed by moped drivers over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend.

Two men took off with the unnamed cyclist’s bike after the incident on 2 June, which happened around 4.30pm. Police have confirmed the men followed the cyclist along Dark Hill towards Broomfield Hill on a moped before cutting in front of the cyclist and snatching the bike.

The suspects were described as approx 25 years old, male, wearing a black coat, grey jogging bottoms, with a white or light grey helmet.

The Met are now appealing for anyone with information or footage of the robbery to come forward.

Local group Richmond Park Cyclists tweeted:

“Please stay safe and look out for other cyclists, especially those cycling on their own who these types of criminals tend to target. Hopefully this is a one-off and not a return to the violent attacks of last year.”

Officers are asking anyone with information to call 101 and quote the reference number 0406215/22.
