A man was threatened with a knife in a motorcross bike robbery in Weston-super-Mare .

Two men approached the victim on a cycle path running alongside Marchfields Way on January 7 at about 8.40pm.

They threatened him with a knife and one of them punched the victim before they made off with his motocross bike.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment.

The two offenders fled in the direction of St Ives Road and the Husqvarna before the bike was later found in Westbury Crescent.

The first man was described as white, approximately 6ft and of a thin build.

He had his hood up and had facial stubble.

The second man, wearing a beanie hat, was said to be black, of medium build and about 5ft 8ins.

Avon and Somerset Police want to hear from anybody in the area between 8.25-8.40pm.

A spokesman said: “We particularly keen to hear from anybody with dash cam or video footage that may have captured the offence or the bike being ridden by the offenders without helmets.”
