AN AUTISTIC teenager, 16, was ‘in shock’ after three masked men robbed his bike at knifepoint in Coventry.
Longford resident Karlina Kennedy took to Facebook to appeal after her son Corey Kennedy was ambushed near Moat House Park last Thursday (June 27).
She says he returned home in tears after his Voodoo Hoodoo Mountain Bike worth about £450 was taken from him.
A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: “Police were called after a 16-year-old boy was robbed of his bike at knifepoint in Deedmore Road, Wood End, Coventry.
“Three masked men are understood to have approached the boy and demanded his mountain bike at around 7.30pm on Thursday (June 27).
“One of them threatened him with the knife and the teenager handed over the bike.”
Ms Kennedy has launched an appeal across social media in search of the stolen bike – and says it may have been spotted in the city centre, near the Transport Museum.
She said: “Our lad is safe but still shaken up. Hopefully we get the bike back.
“If not at least we can say we still have our son. He’s worth more than the bike.”
