Robbers steal 5,000 bicycles in Mexico

world Updated: Nov 03, 2009 08:01 IST

A group of about 20 armed attackers stole 5,000 children's bicycles from a manufacturing company in Mexico City, after threatening and locking up company workers.

The National Association of Bicycle Manufacturers (Anafabi) told the daily Reform in a report published Monday that the attack happened two weeks ago.

Attackers reportedly stormed the premises of the firm Grupo Oriental and took - within two-and-a-half hours - the bikes, which were all set for distribution for the Christmas season.

"I can guarantee you that the 5,000 bicycles they stole from this man are now around there, hidden in some storage place, because the strong sales season for a bike is the Christmas season," said Anafabi spokesman Gunter Maerker.
