A ‘have-a-go hero’ fought off two robbers who attacked him after trying to steal his motorbike.
The 46-year-old ran out of his house with nunchucks to confront the two thugs when he spotted them trying to steal his bike.
But one of the suspects snatched the martial arts weapons from him and attacked him, causing injuries to his hand.
CCTV cameras caught the two masked yobs, who were riding a stolen motorbike and wearing black crash helmets, as they drove up and down the road outside the property.
One then got off the motorbike and, armed with a screwdriver, tried to steal the three-wheeled trike that was parked in the street in Norbury, south London.
As one of the attackers repeatedly hits the bike owner with the weapon, he manages to grab the robber and push him against a parked car.
Two neighbours then came out to help the victim as the confrontation continued.
Both suspects then ran off before abandoning the stolen motorbike they were riding in the street at around 1.30pm on December 10 last year.
The first suspect is described as wearing a dark coloured jacket with a red logo on the back, black trousers with a blue line down the side, black trainers with white soles and gloves.
The second suspect is said to have been wearing a dark jacket with grey at the top, dark trousers, black trainers with white soles and a helmet with a Nike tick on the back.
Detective Constable Ania Casey, of Croydon CID, said: ‘If the owner had not locked his motorbike with a heavy chain, his bike may have been taken in seconds.
‘Those extra minutes were sufficient enough to alert the owner and his neighbours to deter the two suspects.
‘I would urge anyone with information or who witnessed the incident to call officers.
