Two people have hit a dirt-bike rider with a "stick-like" object, before stealing his bike.

At approximately 3.20pm on Sunday, July 3, the victim was riding an orange and white dirt bike (KTM 85 SX 19/16) on the Line Path bridleway between Potters Bar and Brookmans Park.

As the rider passed the solar farm nearby, he was stopped by two individuals and "hit with a stick-like object".

The victim's bike was then taken.

Herts police have since released images of two men who were in the area at the time of the incident.
