Police are seeking man who allegedly pulled a knife on a boy riding his bike in Mosgiel earlier this week.
Sergeant Boyd Smart, of Mosgiel, said the 10-year-old boy was riding his new bike along Murray St, Mosgiel, about 3.50pm on Tuesday when a man he rode past allegedly pulled a knife on him.
The man allegedly 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 Crescent 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.
