A bike like this one was stolen from a boy in Morley.

A 13-year-old boy had his bike stolen from him as he walked near his home on Sunday.

Ben Moizer was walking towards Bridge Street,Morley, at about 2.30pm when he saw two boys of a similar age, coming towards him with a bike.

Mum Janine said: “Ben got off of his bike and carried on walking with it so they could get past. One said Ben had a nice bike and asked how much he would sell it for. Ben said it wasn’t for sale and tried to keep walking. Next thing they took his bike from him and rode off. He came home in a bit of state, really shocked. He’s just a normal lad who likes to go out with his mates. Thank goodness after what happened he hasn’t wanted to stop going out.”

The bike is a Big Daddy Rooster BMX, white with blue writing and distinctive blue plastic wheels.

Anyone with information should call the police via 101.
