His injuries were not considered life threatening and he is continuing to receive treatment in hospital.

Enquiries are ongoing into the circumstances, but it appears the victim was deliberately knocked off his bike by two suspects on a motor scooter.

He had been approached by the suspects, who were masked and dressed in black clothing, at about 9pm on the footbridge between Whitehall Road and Wortley Recreation Ground as he was on his way to deliver a takeaway.

They demanded his electric bike, but he refused and rode off pursued by the suspects across Wortley Recreation Ground before one of the males struck him from behind causing him to lose consciousness and collide with a wall.
