Boy, 12, threatened and has bike stolen by older teenager in Southend
A 12-year-old boy has had his mountain bike stolen after he was threatened by an older teenager. The boy was approached in Chase Road, Southend, by a teenager, who he described as black, and between 16 and 17 years old, just before 1pm on Sunday, January 28.
