Scooter collision following alleged robbery

Hull: We’re looking for three men

8 Mar 2018

We want to find three men who allegedly threatened a man before robbing him of his mobile phone in Hull.

The victim was standing at a pedestrian crossing on Cottingham Road holding his phone when the suspects, who were all on a moped, approached him.

They stopped and allegedly threatened the man then stole the phone from him. The three rode off and the rider lost control and collided into the nearby Trinity Methodist church wall.

Two suspects ran away while the third rode the moped off. The male victim was unhurt.

The incident happened on 6 March 2018 around 7.45pm. There is no description of the males but it’s thought they were on a black Yamaha scooter.
