Boy, 14, is robbed on cycle path

A 14-year-old schoolboy has been robbed at knifepoint as he walked along a cycle path in Dundee.

He was on the path, between Balunie Drive and Drumgeith Road, when he was approached by a man on a bike at about 18:45 on Monday.

The man produced a knife and threatened the boy before stealing all of his possessions.

The 14-year-old was unhurt but was left shaken and upset, a Tayside Police spokeswoman said.

Police said the man was white, in his 20s and about 5ft 8in and of slim build.

He was wearing a black tracksuit and made off towards Drumgeith Road after the robbery.

Officers want to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident.
