Three teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of stealing a mountain bike from a house in Alfreton.
At around 6.30pm on Sunday, October 30 a man heard a knock on the front door of his home in Mansfield Road.
Before he answered the door it was opened by a teenage boy who then stepped into the hallway and asked for money.
The victim refused to give him any money and the boy then allegedly took a mountain bike from the house.
Two boys, aged 15 and 17-years-old, and a 16-year-old girl were arrested later that evening on suspicion of burglary.
They have been released on bail pending further inquiries.
