An elderly female cyclist has been robbed in broad daylight in Armidale.
The woman was confronted by youths on the cycleway behind Wright Village at Armidale at about 2.15pm on Sunday, December 19.
The males, described as juveniles of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander appearance, were on a motorcycle when they collided with the female cyclist, causing her to fall to the ground.
The offenders then returned to the scene and stole the victim's bag.
Detectives are calling on anyone who may have witnessed suspicious activity in the area, have information or know the offenders involved to contact police.
"Residents are reminded that the smallest piece of information, which may seem insignificant on its own, often proves to be the missing piece of a much larger puzzle," Detective Acting Inspector Matthew Harmer said.
"If you were in the area of Wright Village around 2pm Sunday, maybe you saw something - perhaps someone appeared to be acting suspicious, or perhaps you've heard something since this time.
"Investigators are extremely interested in what you know, what you have seen or what you have heard.
"If you know something, do something - your information could be the last piece of the puzzle that police need to solve a case like this."
Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
The information you provide will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
"People should not report crime information via police social media pages," Mr Harmer said.
