POLICE are trying to trace the owners of two bikes that were damaged in Chelmsford.

The bikes, which were chained to stands outside H M Samuel, in High Street, were damaged by two suspects, and although police left notes on the cycles, the owners have not come forward.

The bikes damaged were an Apollo Slammer mountain bike and an Ammaco Mountaineer mountain bike.

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage and have been bailed pending further enquiries.

It happened at about 10.45pm on Sunday, June 3. Police have only just released details of the incident.
