An appeal has been launched by Cambridgeshire police to find a man who tried to steal a cycle from a woman in Soham.

Police say the attempted theft happened at around 7pm on May 2 as the woman was cycling in the town.

“A male attempted to steal a cycle from a lone female cycling along a footpath between Julius Martin Lane, and the rear of Heron Croft in Soham,” said a police spokesman.

The suspect is described as being a white male, aged 20-25 years, medium build and wearing a black hooded top with the hood up, and black jogging bottoms.

The suspect ran off in the direction of Julius Martin Lane.

If you have any information please contact PC 2222 Andy Free at Ely police station on 101.
