Samaritan' rescues victim from attackers

Issue 434

A GOOD Samaritan stopped to help a cyclist who was being attacked by two thugs in Birstall last week.
The passing motorist pulled up in Howden Clough Lane at around 5.30am last Monday to stop an attempted robbery. A 21yearold man was pushing his bike up the road when two yobs assaulted him and tried to steal the cycle.
The pair, a black youth aged 16 to 20 and a white youth aged 22 to 23, fled emptyhanded when the motorist intervened.
The black suspect was described as stocky, clean shaven, with black hair. He was wearing black Adidas tracksuit bottoms plus a white Henleys Tshirt.
He also wore a dark blue hooded top and black gloves and was riding a blue mountain bike with full suspension.
The white suspect was about 5ft 7in tall, unshaven and had short black hair. He was wearing a dark blue baseball cap and dark Berghausstyle coat. Anyone with information should call Det Con Mike Parris at Dewsbury CID on 0845 606 0606 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
