A man who chased a boy with a knife, demanding his bike, is being sought by police.
Sergeant Boyd Smart, of Mosgiel, said the 10-year-old boy was riding his new bike in Murray St, Mosgiel, about 3.50pm on Tuesday when a man he rode past pulled a knife on him.
"The male demanded the bike as the child rode past him before chasing him a short distance down Murray St," he said.
"The boy was able to evade the male by biking down the alleyway linking Murray St and Stirling Cres, where he rode to a friend’s address."
The alleged offender was described as a Maori or Polynesian man in his 30s or 40s, with short, dark hair.
He was wearing a dark blue hoodie, dark pants and dark sneakers. He had a tattoo on his left hand and the pocket knife had a gold handle with a silver blade.
