A motorbike which was advertised for sale on Facebook Marketplace has been stolen by a man who said he wanted to buy it.
The orange and black KTM 250cc off-road motorcycle was put up for sale on Facebook Marketplace where the seller was contacted by a man who claimed he lived in Warren Close, Brandon.
A price was agreed for the motorcycle and the two agreed to meet there to make the exchange.
The victim had put a small amount of fuel in the bike so he could demonstrate the engine worked, but the offender jumped on the bike and rode off, making no attempt to pay for it.
The incident occurred at 2.45pm on Thursday, December 3 and the suspect is described as being white, aged in his late 20s, approximately 5ft 10in tall, of slim build and has short black hair.
