Thames Valley Police is releasing CCTV images of a man it would like to speak to in connection with a robbery.

Officers want to speak to the man in connection with the robbery of a taxi driver in Coleshill Place, Bradwell Common, at 4.18am on 22 October.

The man is alleged to have got into the taxi outside the Xscape building in central Milton Keynes, near to the KFC restaurant, with two Asian women.

The three passengers were then taken to Coleshill Place in the taxi, where the two women got out and walked away.

At this time, the man attempted to punch the driver in the face through his open window.

The driver attempted to get out of his car to confront the man, but was pushed back inside the vehicle and held down while the man took £40 in cash and a packet of cigarettes from his pocket before running off in the direction of Bradwell Common Boulevard towards the Countryman public house.

The man is described as Asian, about 21-years-old, 5ft 8ins, slim, with medium length, slicked back hair.

PC Mark Burgess said: “I would like to speak to anyone who may have any information about this incident, or who recognises the man shown here in the CCTV.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Burgess via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Line on 0845 8 505 505. Alternatively, you can contact the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
