Two people have been arrested after two robberies in Liverpool this week.
Police today said that at around 4.30pm on Monday, December 13, they were called to reports that a black Honda motorcycle was stolen from outside Subway on Bold Street.
Later that day, at around 5.30pm, they received reports that three suspects robbed a food delivery driver on Mill Road, West Derby.
It was reported that the driver, riding a black and red electric Carrera Vengeance bicycle, was pushed to the ground and his bike and mobile phone were taken.
The suspects then made off with the bike and phone on motorcycles.
Officers believe the suspects were riding the stolen Honda motorbike at the time of the robbery.
The driver suffered minor injuries but was left shaken by the incident.
Police investigating the robberies tracked the motorcycle to an address on Partridge Close, West Derby.
Officers attended the address and located the Honda and a further motorbike reported stolen from Old Church Yard, Liverpool, on Sunday, December 12.
A quantity of suspected cannabis and suspected Class A drugs was also recovered.
A 17-year-old man from Liverpool was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, robbery, section 39 assault and possession of Class A and B drugs.
A 22-year-old woman from Liverpool was arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A and B drugs and handling stolen goods.
The 22-year-old has now been released under investigation while the 17-year old male has now been bailed with conditions pending further enquiries.
Detective Inspector Jennie Beck said: "The arrests made yesterday show that we simply will not tolerate such disgraceful attacks and robberies on those who are simply carrying out their business and trying to make a living in our communities.
"Following such robberies from delivery drivers, we have stepped up patrols in the city centre and surrounding areas to prevent similar incidents from occurring.
"We are also urging cyclists, particularly those undertaking takeaway deliveries, to be vigilant and report any incidents to police so that we can take action.
"While we have made two arrests, enquiries into the robberies remain ongoing. If you were in the Bold Street or Mill Lane areas on Monday evening and saw anything or anyone suspicious then please let us know. Information you hold could be vital to our enquiries."
