Detectives appeal for information after teenage boy was attacked and robbed at Rimrose Valley Park


Detectives are appealing for information following reports of a robbery where a teenage boy was attacked and his bike stolen at Rimrose Valley Country Park in Litherland, yesterday (Thursday 21 March).


A spokesperson from Merseyside Police said: "Just before 3.30pm we received a report that a schoolboy was riding his electric cube mountain bike through Rimrose Valley Park when he was stopped by a group of youths described at 16-17 years of age, one who was riding a small white and green scrambler bike and the another two on a black electric bike. The victim was threatened with a knife and assaulted, following which the youths stole his electric bike. The victim suffered injuries to his face and body. "


"An investigation is underway and officers have released a picture of the stolen electric bike after carrying out initial CCTV enquiries in the area but are appealing for any further CCTV or dashcam footage."


Detective Inspector Samantha Davies said: “This was a violent and terrifying attack on a teenage boy who was assaulted and left fearing for his own safety after his bike was stolen."


“The incident happened in one of our city’s parks during a busy time of the day where people who were leaving schools in the area may have seen the attack."


“If you were near this area of the park during yesterday afternoon and saw the incident or have recently seen the electric bike pictured please contact police immediately so we can find those responsible."


“Our officers will immediately respond to any incidents involving knife crime and are committed in removing anyone who stores, carries and uses weapons through proactive use of stop and search powers, open land searches, warrants and education work alongside partners. Our local officers are also providing an increased police presence in the area."


“We will continue to seek out those involved in knife crime, who carry weapons or are involved in gangs, but we also need your support."


”Information from our community is vital if we are to stop such violent crimes that causes fear in our parks where families and children visit."

Original story and appeal from the mother of the teenager that was attacked...


We have received a heartfelt letter from a distressed mother concerning an alarming incident involving her 15-year-old son. He was subjected to an assault by three individuals while traversing Rimrose Valley country park from Crosby to Litherland on his electric bike.


In her plea, the mother earnestly appeals to the community for any witnesses who may have seen the attack unfold, as well as for any individuals who may possess footage of the perpetrators. This vicious assault has left both the family and the community deeply concerned. Any assistance provided in shedding light on this distressing event would be greatly appreciated.


Dear Crosby Bubble:

"My 15 Yr old Son has just been held at gun and knife point on Rimrose as he went across from Crosby to Litherland."


"The three men on an electric motorcycle and a petrol motocross bike chased him, pulled him from his bike, beat him, kicked him in the head, stuck a knife in his face and a gun in his back and stole his black Cube electric bike."


"There were two Ladies walking a medium size brown fluffy dog, one lady in a black coat and one in a long army green coat who my son says witnessed this. I am hoping for any information to pass onto the Police. If anyone seen anything please get in touch and please keep your kids safe."


"The access point to Rimrose on Derwent Road was where my son went onto the path and he says they were at that point and followed him from there."


"Perhaps someone living there may have CCTV or Ring doorbell footage of the men on the motorbikes prior to my son accessing the path."


An urgent safeguarding message was sent from Chesterfield High School to warn other parents of the incident:
