A have-a-go hero who tried to stop an alleged robber from taking a man’s bike was left with gashes to his head and a dislocated finger after the suspect turned his attack on him.

The victim, 34, spotted the suspect trying to rob a man of his bicycle outside Charlies Wine Bar at Neasden Circle, yesterday (Sunday) at around 6.25pm.
