Police ask for information after robbery in Port Macquarie

Police are appealing for information after a teenager was robbed in Port Macquarie yesterday.

Police have been told that at about 2pm on Thursday (July 13), a 13-year-old boy was riding his bike on Major Innes Road when he stopped to give way to a car and was struck on the back of his neck by a man.

The force caused the boy to fall from his bike onto the ground. The boy was not injured.

The man attempted to ride away on the bike but dropped the bike and left the scene on foot with the boy’s backpack. He was last seen headed south on The Ruins Way.
