A CYCLIST was robbed by a gang as he waited to cross a busy road in Frimley on Tuesday.
A cyclist was robbed in High Street, Frimley on November 6.
The 20-year-old Filipino man was on a bicycle at the bottom of Frimley High Street near to the Frimley Bridges roundabout and the Farnborough Gate roundabout when he was approached by four suspects between 3.40pm and 3.50pm.
One of the group of men grabbed the victim's wrist and demanded his watch, threatening him if he did not hand it over.
The cyclist was intimidated by the offenders and handed the wrist watch to the suspect. The victim was then forced to give up his mobile phone and the light from his bicycle was unscrewed before the gang ran off.
The suspects are described as two white men and two black men, all in their twenties.
The first is described as white, around 22-years-old, 5ft 6" tall, of slim build with short blonde hair and a moustache. He was wearing a red puffa jacket and light grey jogging bottoms.
The second suspect is described as white, around 26-years-old, 5ft 10" tall, of a muscular build with a red Mohican style hair, shaved on the side and a black moustache. He was wearing a dark blue hooded jacket, blue jeans or trousers and was carrying a red Nike drawstring bag.
The third suspect is described as black, approximately 23-years-old, 5ft 2" tall and of slim build. He had short black curly hair and was wearing a brown woolly hat, a white hooded puffa jacket and sky blue jogging bottoms with Nike written on the side of one leg.
The fourth suspect is described as black, approximately 28-years-old, 6ft 1"tall and of heavy build. He was wearing a brown hooded puffa jacket and red jogging bottoms.
