Three males in a purple Ford Fiesta stole a mountain bike from a 14 year old boy in Colne around 4pm yesterday (16th February).
The boy was with his friends when the men got out of the vehicle wearing balaclavas and threatened them with a knife.
The victim’s mother said “These scumbags, threatend to stab my son and his friends before beating one of the boys. I’m absolutely fuming, who the hell do they think they are. Let’s catch the nasty horrible individuals”
The incident comes days after a purple Ford Fiesta with three males approached a man in Dunham, Altrincham and produced a knife.
At approximately 12.30am on Sunday 25 January, a grey VW GTI, registration WV70 YUT was stolen from Welman Way in Altrincham. After thieves had broken into the house.
The thieves also stole a grey Calibre triple B pro mountain bike. The bike is new and part of a limited edition collection.
The vehicle was spotted on CCTV on Golf Road next to Altrincham Football Club at 00:35. Two males, one pushing a bike believed to the one stolen were also seen on the footage.
A car seat from the stolen car was later found in the bushes at the end of Golf Street.
The owner of the vehicle posted details of the theft onto the Wythenshawe Stolen Vehicle’s & Surrounding Area’s Facebook page and wrote “Police wondered if they’d replaced the reg plates before departing but they were only parked for two minutes and as we found our kids car seat in the bushes I suspect they stopped to dump what they didn’t want.
It’s quite distinctive with original tartan seats and red trim.”
