A Chesterfield man is urging bike owners to be vigilant after an incident in the town this morning.
Reece Mitchell said someone tried to steal his motorbike from his girlfriend's house on Derby Road at around 5.45am.
Reece explained: "I got woken up by my girlfriend's mum saying, 'your bike is getting nicked'.
"She shouted out of the window to see if that would spook them and it did.
"They slammed my bike down to the floor and ran off."
Reece urged people to lock up their bikes when not using them.
