Suffolk police are appealing for witness after a 25-year-old woman was assaulted and her bike stolen in Newmarket last night, according to the East Anglian Daily Times.

At about 10.30 pm, the woman stepped off her bike near a block of flats after hearing a group of five-to-six men talking nearby, a Suffolk Police spokesman told the paper.

“She turned to look at the males when one of them kicked her on the hip which caused her to fall over on to her bike and she hit her head on a step to one of the flats,” the spokesman said.

“The man began to pull her bike away and then called to one of the other men to help him. The man rode off on the bike with the other man running off behind him.”

The bike is described as a 2012 Boardman Comp Pro women’s mountain bike. It is mainly white with a pink Boardman sticker on the frame, white seat, pink pedals, the front forks are white with a Rockshox sticker on each.

The first man is described as Asian, in his mid 30s with black hair and black stubble, he wore a dark hooded top with writing on the front and mid denim jeans.

The second man is also described as Asian in his late 20s, he had black hair on his top lip, he wore a lighter coloured hooded top and mid denim jeans.

Both men had their hoods up.

Of the other three or four men, two were white, the remainder Asian. All wore hooded tops and spoke in a foreign language.

Police are appealing for witnesses who should either call 101 to help or email headquarters@suffolk.pnn.police.uk

Unbelieveable, hope the victim recovers and these b*stards are caught.

If I could have, say, 6 bikes, would it stop me drooling over others that I don't have?
