3 young women robbed by knife carrying bike theft

MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives, working in the Sefton area have issued an appeal for information following a robbery in Southport that took place on Thursday, 16 February 2016.

We are told that at around 1.15am, 3 young women were walking along Duke Street towards Lord Street. As they got to the Junction with Shakespeare Street, a man approached them and demanded their mobile phones. We are also told that the man was reported to have been in possession of a knife. The man took their 3 iPhones and rode away on a small grey and black BMX style bike, onto Linaker Street. The offender is described as being aged between 19 to 20, 5 feet 11inches tall and of large build with bushy brown eyebrows and brown hair, olive complexion and a short brown beard. He was wearing black jogging bottoms and a light grey North Face jacket with the hood pulled up. The investigation is on going with CCTV and witnesses enquiries are being made.

Detective Constable Jamie Dean said:- "The victims in this case are obviously very shaken and upset and we are supporting them as they deal with this crime. They have been able to provide us with a detailed description of the offender and I am sure that someone must know or suspect who has done this. I would appeal to anyone with information to come forward and tell us. You could just stop someone else becoming a victim. If someone offers to sell you an iPhone then please contact us as it may be stolen."

Detectives are appealing for anyone who has any information about this incident to contact Sefton CID on:- 0151 777 3824 or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
