Two men stole the bike of a woman cycling to work last night in Newmarket.

A woman cycling to work was attacked by robbers last night, police have said.

A 25-year-old female cyclist was assaulted in Rowley Drive, Newmarket, at around 10.30pm yesterday.

She stepped off her bike near a block of flats after hearing a group of five-to-six men talking nearby, a Suffolk Police spokesman said.

“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 added.

“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, worth £1,000, is described as a 2012 Boardman comp pro ladies 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 Rockshock 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.

All the other men were Asian apart from two white males and all wore hooded tops and spoke in a foreign language.

The force is appealing for witnesses to come forward. Call 101 to help.
