New Year robbery in Glen Parva

Female attacked on Leicester Road, close to junction with Glenville Avenue

Police say that people on their way home from seeing-in the New Year may have vital information about a robbery in Glen Parva.

The incident took place at the junction of the A426 Leicester Road and Glenville Avenue just after 1am on January 1st and police are now appealing for witnesses.

The female victim was walking towards Glenville Avenue when the male attacker riding a bicycle approached her from behind.

He made verbal threats to her, knocked her to the ground, then reached into her coat pocket and stole her mobile phone.

He ran off city-bound along Leicester Road – leaving his green Raleigh bike behind him.

The crime is being investigated by Detective Constable 0514 Chris Coates who says:

“This was a nasty incident. The victim was left with some minor bruising and was understandably shaken by her ordeal.

“I know that Leicester Road was busy with motorists and pedestrians at that time, and I would ask people to cast their mind back to the early hours of the New Year to see if there is anything that could help our investigation.

“I am also interested in where this bicycle came from. Do you know someone who used to have a green Raleigh but no longer had it after January 1?”

The suspect is described as slim, about 16-20 years old, and was wearing a light coloured hooded top.

Anyone with information should call Detective Constable 0514 Chris Coates on 101; when prompted enter his identity code 0514. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 222.

Police issue image of cars in area of Narborough Road collision

Officers investigating a fatal collision on Narborough Road in September have issued an image of a number of vehicles that were in the area at the time of the collision.

The collision occurred at about 4.22am on Friday September 2 on the A5460, Narborough Road and involved one vehicle, a silver Renault Master van.

The driver of the van and one of the two passengers received minor injuries and were treated at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

The second passenger, Mr Soyab Bhaiji (22) of Leicester, received serious injuries and was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, where he subsequently died on Thursday September 8.

A 43-year-old man was arrested on Friday September 2 in connection with the incident and released on police bail pending further enquiries.

This is the third appeal police have released and officers involved hope that the image will encourage the motorists and potential witnesses to come forward.

Detective Constable Ady Keeble is investigating the incident, he said:

“We have been appealing for information about this collision since it happened and hope that by releasing this image the drivers of the vehicles will come forward.

“Its possible that they witnessed the collision and could be able to help us with our investigation so I would urge them to call us as soon as they can.

“The Renault van was travelling along Narborough Road citybound when the collision happened just before the Tesco Express service station.

“From enquiries we have made so far we believe that a dark saloon type vehicle was travelling ahead of the van and both vehicles slowed down at the traffic lights at the junction of Narborough Road and Braunstone Lane, opposite the Braunstone Working Men’s Club.

“We would urge the occupants of that car to contact the police as they may be able to provide valuable information about the collision or the events leading up to it.

“The image released shows three further vehicles travelling along Narborough Road from Fullhurst Avenue towards Fosse Park in the moments prior to the collision. Whilst these vehicles were travelling in the opposite direction to the silver Renault Master van, it is possible that the occupants may have witnessed the collision, and I would appeal to them to contact me.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC 506 Ady Keeble on Leicester (0116) 222 2222, follow the instructions to leave a message for a police officer and when prompted key in the officer’s identification number 0506.  Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers, which is free* and anonymous on 0800 555 111.
