A 15-YEAR-OLD boy was targeted by machete-wielding robbers who stole his e-bike in a terrifying incident in Halesowen.

The teenager was on Stourbridge Road in broad daylight at around 3.50pm on Friday (April 5) when he was robbed.

His fuming mum, who does not want to be named, said her son - who was threatened with a machete - is okay, but shaken up.

She said two offenders riding a Supermoto motorbike knocked her son off his Focus e-bike.

She said one was carrying a machete down his leg and pointed to it to warn her son off.

The woman appealed for anyone who knows who targeted her son or who has been offered his e-bike for sale, to contact police.

She said: "My son was on his own - he was on his way to Hawk Cycles to get a new brake.

"They passed him and then turned round to go back to him. They drove into him to knock him off.

"He got back onto the bike, but they knocked him off again, he grabbed the bike and told them to leave him alone but they overpowered him.

"The one on the motorbike had got a machete down the side of his leg and pointed to it to warn my son.

"He was shaken up - he said he was absolutely petrified, but the adrenalin kicked in.

"Thankfully he's fine and luckily he's one of those lads who just gets on with it and doesn't let things bother him."

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "Police have received reports of a 15-year-old boy having his bike stolen at knifepoint in Stourbridge Road, Halesowen, around 3.50pm on Friday (April 5)."
