The incident happened in Main Road, at around 12.50pm last Wednesday. The bike, a Yamaha YB100 was later found in an alleyway where it had been abandoned.

Officers would particularly like to speak to an elderly couple who may have been walking past at the time of the incident.

Pc Kevin Ward, of Harwich Neighbourhood Crime Team, said: “This happened close to an alleyway by Northsea View in Main Road which also leads through to Hollyrood.

“The victim was approached by a man, was threatened, and had his hooded top pulled over his head. His motorbike was then taken. The man then headed off in the direction of Willow Way. I am very keen to speak to the couple that were walking past at the time of the incident. I would like them to contact me at Harwich Police Station.”

A 15-year-old boy from Harwich was arrested later that day on suspicion of robbery. He has been bailed pending further enquiries until Wednesday, July 30.

Don't believe the message that Jeremy Corbyn is unelectable

There’s something about Jez (as we hip young things on social media call Jeremy Corbyn) that thoroughly warms my cockles. Perhaps it’s his air of humility, his open-necked honesty or simply his dogged under-dogness?

Providing care for those in extreme old age, and with serious long-term health problems, is one of the major challenges facing society – especially for an area like East Anglia which has a disproportionately high number of older people.
