Hull: Be aware not alarmed – keep property out of sight and secure to avoid being a victim of street robbery

12 Dec 2017

We have had a number of street robberies reported between 7 and 9 December on Newland Avenue and Cottingham Road in Hull.  The reports vary but most say that two men, one wearing a red striped jacket and red helmet on a moped, mounted the pavement and trying to snatch people’s mobile phones from their hands and has stolen bicycles.

Until we can find who these people are and arrest them we are appealing for people to be extra vigilant and keep their mobile phones and bags secure.

We have a grainy CCTV image of a man who we suspect has been involved in these incidents and if anyone is able to help us identify him or has information that would help with our enquiries, please call us on 101 quoting log 178 08/12/17.
