Blind, deaf and autistic man attacked by robber in Milton Keynes


A man who is blind, deaf and autistic was left with a black eye when a robber attacked him at a bus stop on Monday night.

The victim was outside centre:mk at 11pm, at bus stop H3, when the offenders assaulted him and stole cigarettes from him.

He was left with a black eye and a cut to one of his eyebrows before the offender then ran off in the direction of McDonald’s.

Two men who were walking their dog stopped to help the victim about an hour later and called the police for him.

Det Con Lisa-Marie Flitter said: “While we have the details of the two men walking their dog, there is still a 30-minute window between 11pm and 11.30pm in which officers would like to identify any further witnesses.

“At the time that these two witnesses stopped to assist, the victim was shouting out for help, so it may be that someone else will have heard him before that and therefore might have seen the offender.

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have seen the offender, or who may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the area of the bus stop between 11pm and 11.30pm, to come forward and report this to us.”
