A man was threatened with a firearm and knife when intruders broke into a flat in Milton Keynes and stole a quantity of cash.

The incident happened at around 3am on Thursday (Feb 25), in Woodall Close in Milton Keynes. The men demanded money from the 30-year-old victim, before leaving the scene in a white car.

No one was injured.

Police searched the area and later arrested two people in the Fullers Slade area.

The first offender is white, 6ft 1in, large and between 18 to 30 years old, with short light coloured hair and facial stubble. He was wearing a grey tracksuit.

The second offender is white, in his late teens to early 20s, 5ft 11ins, slim with facial stubble. He was wearing a white hoody with tracksuit trousers.

The third offender is white, in his 20s, medium build with black hair and he was wearing a dark jumper.

Investigating officer, Det Con Kim McHugh from Force CID at Milton Keynes police station, said: “Fortunately no one was injured during this incident, but the victim was understandably shaken by what happened. The subsequent area search may also have caused local residents some concern, and I would like to reassure everyone that we have arrested two people and we are working to locate the third offender.

“At this stage we do not believe that this was a random attack.
