Clay Hill Road, attempted robbery

November 21, 2012, 3:04 pm

Detectives are appealing for information following an attempted street robbery in Basildon.

The attack on Clay Hill Road happened at 9:30am on Tuesday, November 20 when a 19-year-old man was walking along the road. A cyclist pulled up alongside him and tried to talk to him, but was ignored. The cyclist then punched the pedestrian in the back of the head and then to the face before demanding he hand over money. The pedestrian retaliated in self-defence and the cyclist rode off empty-handed.

Investigating Officer, Dc Kennedy Emson, said: “This attack happened on a main road in Basildon and at the back end of rush hour. Were pretty sure someone would have seen this altercation and so would urge them to contact us.”

The cyclist is described as white, approximately six foot tall, has light-brown hair, has a scar below his right eye, is of medium build and was wearing a grey tracksuit. He was riding a black mountain bike.

The victim did not require any medical treatment.

Anyone with information in connection with this attempted robbery is urged to contact detectives at Basildon police station on 101.
