A bike similar to this one was stolen from the man and woman.

An investigation has been launched after the attack in Bradlaugh Fields, Kettering Road, near to the Morrisons supermarket sometime between 11.30pm and 11.50pm on Thursday (June 21).

A man and woman were sitting talking in a field when they were approached by two men.

One of the men pushed the woman and they both then attacked the man, hitting him several times. They then stole his mobile phone, bag and pedal cycle - a white and black Claude Butler racing bike similar to the one pictured - before running back towards Kettering Road and the town centre.
