Surrey Police are appealing to the public for help identifying a boy, after he was reportedly robbed of his bike in Epsom on bank holiday Monday (August 27).

A witness reported the robbery to the police, who have been unable to trace the victim.

The incident allegedly occurred at 6.30pm on Green Lanes near Chessington Road, shortly after a group of two or three men threatened a family with knives.

Surrey Police said no one was injured but the family were very shaken.

One of the men, who were seen driving a black Toyota with yellow wing mirrors, approached a boy on the other side of the road and robbed him of his pedal cycle.

The Toyota and stolen bicycle then headed towards Longmead Road.

Sergeant Andrew Bailey said: "This was an extremely frightening incident for the family, especially for the children, who have been left shaken by the behaviour of these men.

"The boy who had his bike robbed has not reported it to us, but we would like him to come forward so we can support him and he can assist us with our enquiries.

"If you know of a boy who's bike has gone missing recently, please ask them where it has gone and encourage them to come forward if they were this victim.

Surrey Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information about a black Toyota with yellow wing mirrors to come forward on 101, quoting PR/45180091931.

Alternatively any information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity CrimeStoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
