WHEN a 19-year-old refused to hand over cash to five youths, they made off with his bike worth £300, police said today.

The incident happened on Saturday at about 11pm in St Helen's Street, Ipswich, as the cyclist was going home.

He was first asked to hand over money but when he refused, five youths – two of them under the age of 15 – took his BMX instead.
