Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after a man was attacked with a craft knife in Mullion Place in Fishermead yesterday.

At about 9am the victim, a 35-year-old man, was at home alone when he answered a knock at the door. When he opened it, three men rushed into the house, forcing him backwards. A craft knife was put to his face, causing slight cuts. The men demanded money and he handed over his wallet. The men then left.

The men were black and the man with the knife was about 6ft 2ins tall of chubby build. He has a round face and was clean shaven. He is aged in his mid to late twenties and was wearing a dark hooded top with white writing on the front. The hood was pulled up and he was also wearing dark jeans and brown boots. He spoke with what is thought to be an East African accent.

The other two men are in their mid to late twenties and are slimmer than the first male and about 5ft 10ins tall. They were clean shaven and were wearing dark hooded tops with the hood pulled up.

Detective Constable Wayne Watson, who is investigating, said: “I am keen to speak to anyone who may have seen these men in the area at the time or who may know who they are.

“The victim’s children had only just left for school and this could have been a lot worse and thankfully he sustained no serious injuries.”

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the offence or has any information to contact Det Con Wayne Watson at Milton Keynes CID via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
