A 10-YEAR-OLD boy was robbed by two teenagers yesterday after they had threatened to throw him off a bridge

At around 12.50pm, the boy was walking with two friends from the car park located at Broad Dean Eaglestone towards Fourbridges, when he noticed that he was being followed by two boys, one of whom was on a bike.

When the boy and his friends got to the over bridge at the Eaglestone roundabout, the boy with the bike demanded his money and threatened to throw him off of the bridge if he didn’t hand it over.

The victim handed over £7 and the boys left in the direction of Netherfield.

The offender with the bike is described as a white boy, 15 to 16-years-old and overweight. He was between 5ft 5ins and 5ft 7ins, with bushy eyebrows, wearing a black/grey hooded top with the hood pulled up tightly round his face leaving his chin area sticking out. He was riding a red mountain bike.

The second offender is described as mixed race of Oriental origin, 14 to 15-years-old, skinny, and around 5ft 5ins. He was wearing a black Nike jacket and a black woollen hat.

Detective Constable Wendy Cissell, of Local CID at Milton Keynes, said: “I am appealing for anyone who saw the incident to contact police.

“The offenders made off toward the Netherfield and I would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the offenders or the offence take place.”

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the offence, which left the victim shaken and upset. They would also like to hear from anyone who saw the offenders or the incident take place.
