Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted last Wednesday.

At around 3am the 33-year-old man was walking from Central Milton Keynes railway station along Avebury Boulevard towards the city centre. As he approached the junction with Witan Gate he crossed paths with four men and one of them shoulder barged him.

When the man stopped, they challenged him and another pushed him in the chest. The man who shoulder barged him kicked him in the knee, causing him to fall to the ground. Then all four walked away towards the station, laughing and joking.

The first offender is described as white, aged in his mid twenties, 5ft 7ins, of medium build with short blond hair. He was wearing dark blue jeans, a white short-sleeved shirt with a collar and white trainers.

The second offender, who pushed the victim in the chest, is described as white, aged in his mid twenties, about 6ft 1ins, with a very slim build and average length dark brown hair. He was wearing black Umbro tracksuit bottoms and a brown V-neck jumper.

PC Laura White of Milton Keynes said: “While the victim did not sustain any injuries, he was left very shaken by this incident.”

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact PC White via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 0854 8 505 505. If you don’t wish to speak to the police or leave your name, please call the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
