Bike stolen and punched!
Absolutely dispise thugs like that, glad to hear you are alright though mat. Really do not like bike thieves but to be violent with it.....arseoles!
Anyway good news on the insurance front bud.
@cinnamon girl - I live in Cheshire now and went to the local station who tried to get me to report it Merseyside. When I called Merseyside they were great and logged it with themselves and Cheshire and said go back the station and that they should have took the report. Merseyside also sent two CID over and said they had patrols looking for it. Merseyside 10/10. Cheshire - could do better.
As for has anything like that happened in the area before, you obviously do not know the area, it is rough and yes I can say that as I used to live there but it is as is always the case a minority, but you never think it will happen to you and I am not a small guy so obviously didnt think it would happen to me.
yes I know lesson learned I am an idiot.
You are not an idiot, you were just unlucky could have happened to anyone. Hope the scrotes get what's coming to them.
This is getting more common. Not only because of the value of the bikes, but because of the weak sentences this type of crime carries. The police tend to do a good job trying to track them down though.
