Christchurch Police are appealing for witnessed and information about the theft of a motorbike from a layby on the Avon Causeway.
The theft occured between 1pm on Friday 12th October and 11am on Sunday 14th October.
The motorbike had been left in the layby after its owner was involved in a single vehicle collision on Friday morning. The bike is a two year old black Shineray 125cc.
Police Constable Mat Silvey, of Christchurch police, said: "It is very distressing for the victim to be firstly involved in a collision and then to have his bike stolen.
"The lay-by is on a very busy road and I am hopeful that someone witnessed the motorbike being recovered. It is possible that the offenders used another vehicle to help them steal the bike."
The victim, a 20-year-old man from Christchurch, was not injured in the collision.
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 14:212.
