Three men, one of whom had a shaven head and a golden tooth, tried to steal a bike from a man and woman in Acre Lane, Kingsthorpe.

The incident happened on Sunday, September 16, between 6.55pm and 7.15pm, when a man and woman were riding their bicycles in the area.

They were approached by three men in a blue Renault Megane with one of them stating one of the bicycles was his and demanding they hand it over to him.

After the man and woman refused, the men got out of the car and surrounded them in an aggressive manner before police were called. The men then drove off towards Welford Road.
