An iPhone 4S in black was stolen from a Grimsby teenager as he walked along Laceby Road in Grimsbyy, at 6.45pm on Saturday, July 7.
The boy was approached from behind by a man on a pedal cycle who asked the victim for the time.
The victim took his mobile telephone out of his pocket to check the time and the offender snatched it from his hand and made off on his cycle in the direction of Hereford Avenue.
No threats were made and no violence was used.
The suspect is described as a white man, aged 20 to 25 years, slim build, with short, ginger hair, clean shaven and wearing a purple coloured jewel stud in his right eyebrow. He was riding a plain grey coloured pedal cycle.
Anyone who witnessed the theft or recognises the description on the thief, is asked to contact Humberside Police on telephone 101 referring to log 693 of 07 July or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
