Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a robbery on Sunday.

Around 11pm, an 18-year-old man was cycling back from the gym and crossed the bridge leading from Leadenhall into Eaglestone, when a group of four men appeared from an alleyway on Harrier Drive and confronted the victim, preventing him from cycling on.

Two of the men held onto the victim’s arms and the third asked the victim what he had and then went through his pockets, stealing his white iPhone 4. The victim then managed to get away and cycle home. The offenders headed off in the direction of the four bridges.

The main offender who went through the victim’s pockets is described as white, between 16 and 18-years-old, around 5ft 11ins, slim, with brown eyes and dark straight hair. He wore a plain black hooded top with his hood up and black cotton jogging bottoms and spoke with a local accent.

Two other offenders were in dark clothing with their hoods up on their tops and faces covered and the fourth offender wore a light grey hooded top with the hood up.

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

“I would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the offenders or someone trying to sell them the white iPhone 4.”

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. The victim did not require hospital treatment.

Anyone with any information should contact Det Con Reynolds via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Line on 101.
