Thames Valley Police have released an artist’s impression of man who punched a 53-year-old woman during an attempted robbery in Bletchley.
The victim was walking in Barleyhurst Park, Trafalgar Avenue, when a cyclist rode past her at speed, brushing her side. She apologised and the cyclist disappeared.
As she then approached Kinross Drive on the footpath which runs across the park, the cyclist reappeared and cycled towards her.
He then punched her in the chest and said ‘Give me your bag’.
She refused and he moved towards her again. The victim started to scream and ran off towards Kinross Drive.
The cyclist rode off in the opposite direction towards Forfar Drive.
The incident happened between 6.40am and 6.45am on Sunday, February 23. Police have only now released the details.
The offender is white, about 18 years old, of average height, with a thin build, dark eyes, wearing a black hooded top with a white stripe across each arm, and black tracksuit bottoms.
The bike was a black mountain bike.
