Thief nicked motorbike as its owner lay hurt in road
A CALLOUS thief posing as a Good Samaritan stole a motorbike from its owner as he lay seriously injured in the road after a crash.
Stricken Glenn Hawkins, 35, was left with a broken collar bone, punctured lungs and two cracked ribs after coming off his £8,000 Kawasaki ZX-6R on a city centre road.
Seconds later a passer-by pretended to lend him a hand by moving his green and black sports bike.
But instead of helping, the crook roared off with the powerful 600cc machine.
Speaking from his hospital bed, angry construction manager Glenn, from Redland, Bristol, said: “I came off my bike and skidded along the road after a cyclist pulled out in front of me.
“When I got up I said ‘where’s my bike?’ and was told someone had stolen it.
“If anyone sees it, or the thief who stole it, I would really appreciate it if they call the police as soon as possible.”
The thief is described as being stocky, black and wearing a black and white hooded top.
Avon and Somerset Police confirmed they were presently hunting both the suspect and the motorbike.
