The police are appealing for witnesses after a cyclist was robbed of his bike in Swindon.

A force spokesperson said: "He was riding down Fleming Way shortly after 10pm on Sunday, 6 June in the direction of the Jury's Inn when he was approached by two men.
"One of the men gestured towards his waistband as if he was going to pull a knife and told the cyclist to get off his bicycle before taking it from him.
"Shorlty afterwards, we managed to retrieve the mountain bike, worth £500, and make one arrest.
"We are hoping witnesses may be able to help identify the second offender in this incident. We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time or who may have recorded dashcam footage.
"If you can help please contact us on 101, quoting log 54210054116."
