ADAM Thomas was attacked by a thug who tried to steal his pricey electric bike while he was spending quality time with his six-year-old son Teddy.

Prices for the electric bike, which folds, start at around £1.5k.
Fortunately, staff members were on hand and they managed to retrieve the bike, while no one was hurt.
A source told The Sun: “Adam got the electric bike so he could start doing deliveries around town.
“Lockdown has been hard on everyone and he wanted to do what he can to help his restaurant and he was really excited to have Teddy with him.

“A member of staff rushed to his aide and knocked the thief off it and he ran off.”
They added: “Everyone was really shaken up but luckily no one was hurt and hospital treatment wasn’t needed.”
The incident wasn’t reported to the police and Adam’s rep declined to comment further.
On the night of the attempted theft, Adam shared a picture of himself and Teddy alongside the bike and wrote: “Me and lil Teddy On our first delivery for @thespinn_ tonight"
