Man takes a dive on bicycle off Bryson’s Wharf

Police are currently searching for a man, who apparently rode his bicycle off Bryson’s Warf into
the sea early Sunday morning, and has not been seen since. He is described as slimly built, and is
approximately 5ft-8ins in height. He was last seen dressed in dark coloured clothing.

It was reported that the man rode his Lime Green Bicycle westward along Newgate Street
around 2:30 am on Sunday, and allegedly snatched a mobile phone from a man, who was seated
inside his vehicle in the vicinity of the police station. The owner of the phone pursued after him,
and he turned onto the lower portion of Church Street and rode the bicycle off the pier into the
water. He was spotted shortly afterwards swimming in a western direction, and then disappeared.
All efforts were made to find him, but have so far proven futile. The police have since recovered
the bicycle from the water and took it to the police station. Further investigations are continuing
into the matter.

Meantime, Police are appealing to anyone who may be missing a family member, or have
recognized the bicycle and can identify who is the owner, to contact the Criminal Investigations
Department at 462-3913 or 462-3914, without delay.
