Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a robbery yesterday.

Around 3.30pm, a 14-year-old boy was cycling along the Redway which leads from the allotments off Manor Road through Leon Recreation Ground towards the Queensway, Bletchley, at the rear of Knowles Hill Infant School.

As the victim was cycling along he saw an Asian man, who was with three other men, pull a balaclava over his face and pull his hood up.

The victim continued cycling towards the group, who were now in the alley near to the main road. The group of men blocked his way preventing the victim from cycling past and took hold of his arms, pulling him from his bike.

One offender demanded the victim’s black XPerier Mini Pro Sony Ericsson phone, which the victim handed over, and the four offenders began to walk towards the road. One of them then suggested that they should also take the victim’s bike, and they came back and took the dark blue BMX X Rated Hustle bike, which had the X in white stickers, before running off towards Victoria Road.

The first offender is described as an Asian man, aged between 18 and 24-years-old, slim, and about 5ft 8ins and 5ft 11ins. He was wearing a grey hooded top, blue jeans and had a black and white bandana.

The second offender was a black man, aged between 20 and 24-years-old, of medium build and between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 11ins. He was wearing a black tracksuit and had a local accent.

The third and forth offenders were white men possibly wearing white tracksuits.

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

“The offenders made off toward the Victoria Road and I would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the offenders or someone trying to sell them the phone or a bike.”

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.

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