A MAN was knocked off his bike and threatened with a machete in Winsford.

He was cycling along Hill Top Avenue at around 6.50pm on Friday, June 26, when a blue BMW car knocked him off his pushbike.

A male passenger then got out of the car and threatened the victim with a machete.

The male offender returned to the car before it drove away towards the direction of Moss Bank.

Detectives are now appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has dashcam footage of the BMW to get in touch.

Detective Constable John Corrigan of Northwich CID said: “Thankfully the victim involved in this case only sustained minor injuries as a result of being knocked off his bike and was able to flee the scene.

“We are currently investigating several lines of enquiry but are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident and has not yet come forward.

“I would also urge anyone who may have caught dashcam or CCTV footage of the blue BMW around the time of the incident in the Moss Bank, Saxon Crossway or Delamere Street areas to contact us at Northwich CID.
