A man had to be treated in hospital after being dragged off his bike and attacked by a couple in Selby.
It happened at some point between 6.30 and 7.30pm on Saturday (10 June).
He was cycling through the town centre when he stopped at some traffic lights on Gowthorpe.
He was approached by a man and woman who dragged him off his bike into an alleyway, rifled his pockets and subjected him to a “serious assault”.
The victim, a local man in his 40s, was taken to York Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.
The male perpetrator is described as a small, thin male in his 30s. Unfortunately, at this time the victim has not been able to give a description of the woman.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “Officers are requesting the public’s assistance to help establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident and are appealing for information.
“We would particularly like to speak to anyone who came to the aid of the victim following the assault.
“Local residents and business owners on, or near to Gowthorpe, who have CCTV or video doorbells or any drivers who were in the area who have dash cam footage that could assist with identifying the suspects are also asked to get in touch.”
