Just about 11:20PM last night, police and other emergency services were dispatched by the 9-1-1 Communication Centre to South Church Street, where it was reported that a man who was travelling home from work on his bicycle was robbed by three men.
It appears that a man hid behind a container at a construction site on South Church Street in the vicinity of Thompson Way, when he hit the victim on the back of his head, causing him to fall off his bike to the ground.
Another robber, who carried a knife, took a number of personal items from the victim and threatened to stab him.
One robber was described as tall, and wearing a black hoodie and black pants, with a face covering. Another robber was described as being short and wearing a white marina and black shorts, also with something covering his face. There was no description provided for the third man.
The victim was taken to the hospital where he received treatment and was later released.
The matter is currently under investigation by police, and anyone with any information is encouraged to contact George Town CID at 949-4222, or to submit a tip anonymously directly to police at https://www.rcips.ky/submit-a-tip or through Crime Stoppers at 800-8477 or online at http://www.crimestoppers.ky/home/ .
