Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward following a collision between a teenage boy on a motorised mountain bike and a schoolgirl.
The incident happened on St Lawrence Road, Barnwood as the teenage girl was crossing the road after school.
A boy riding a black coloured mountain bike, which had been adapted with a petrol engine, was involved in a collision with the girl, causing her to be knocked to the ground.
She sustained a minor head injury, a black eye and bruising to her elbow.
The rider of the bike also came off, colliding with a parked vehicle, causing scratches to the nearside paint work. He was confronted by the girl's father, before getting back on the bike and riding off in the direction of Metz Way.
The incident happened at around 3.30pm on Thursday 29 September.
The boy was described as being white, in his mid-teens, with short, light brown hair cut into a bowl at the front. He was dressed in black clothing.
Officers are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with dash cam footage who they have not already spoken to about the incident to come forward.
