Two Separate Assaults on Bicyclists in Elk Grove

Two minors who reside in Elk Grove were assaulted over the weekend in order for a thief to steal their respective bicycles.  This information comes to us from the Elk Grove Police Department.

Assault #1

In the first assault, a 16-year-old boy was riding his bike on Friday, November 6, 2015, on Sharkey Avenue (near Ranch Park Way) when he was confronted by two unknown male subjects. As one suspect punched the boy in his face the other suspect made off with his bike.

The suspects in that incident are described as being white males of approximately 18-years of age. The victim did not know what direction they fled.  Responding officers said the young man was not injured seriously.  Officers were not successful in tracking down the suspects based on the victim’s information.

Assault #2

In the other assault, a 14-year-old boy was riding his bicycle along the 8900 block of Sierra Street in Elk Grove on Sunday, November 8, 2015.  It was early in the afternoon when he was confronted by two unknown subjects.  This time, the victim was struck on his back by the suspects who grabbed his bike and fled the scene.  Unfortunately, a physical description of the suspects was not available and responding officers could not locate the suspects or the victim’s bike.  The boy was not seriously injured.
