Four males have mugged a teenage boy for his bike in Ramsgate.
The boy was cycling in Clements Road at around 1.30pm on Saturday (September 26) when he was approached by a group of four people who asked for his bike. When he refused, he was reportedly kicked and the bicycle was taken.
The four suspects are believed to be male and were wearing black masks and unmarked tracksuits at the time of the incident.
The bicycle is described as a red modified SE Fast Ripper with black and metallic orange tyres.

Ramsgate is neglected by thanet council and neglected by the police. Crime is out of control in Ramsgate with violent assaults virtually everyday but still Margate, Broadstairs and Birchington receive all the resources from both the council and the police. It’s time Ramsgate was treated as an equal and not the poor relation of Thanet.
I agree about TDC and margate yet if you walk more than a few hundred yards away from the margate shed, margate is the worst town in thanet. People seem to think that margate starts and finishes within a hundred yards of the shed ( turner centre )
Sorry about the lad having his bike nicked but sadly it wont be found. I was cycling my bike along the prom towards Westgate once and the police were doing a free mark and trace for bikes. I stop and the police marked my bike and took my details to keep on record. Great. You can guess the rest !! My bike got nicked so of I went to report it knowing a few months earlier I had done the track and trace. The police had no record of me !!! Unbelievable. What’s the point of doing a track and trace if the police lose your trace number and address ?
For most people Ramsgate is fine. Please stop exaggerating.
Marva, please stop living in denial.
I don’t think that Broadstairs is prioritized i cannot remember when I last saw a police officer in the town, but there is a massive drug problem in the town .
The trouble is the police dash on blue lights from one job to the next. Often they are dashing past criminals who are doing bad to others. The police used to go into schools as part of Good citizen lesions but I understand the government stop that because it was not part of the National curriculum.
Under the Tory government, police numbers were cut by 20,000.
That explains quite a lot.
Its getting worse. They used to wait until you locked it up & went away.
