On Wednesday, September 25, the victim, aged in his forties, was walking down the Redway opposite Silbury Boulevard in Milton Keynes, when he was approached by two men.

The offenders tapped the victim on the shoulder and when he turned around one of the men was pointing a knife at his chin.

The man with the knife then demanded the victim hand over this wallet, which he did.

Nothing else was stolen in this incident and the victim suffered no physical injury.

It happened between 1pm and 2pm.

The offenders are both described as white men in their late teens to mid-twenties, both with short hair.

One of the men is described as having a slim build and was wearing a black zip-up top, black tracksuit bottoms and dark trainers.

The other man was wearing a royal blue tracksuit top and bottoms with dark trainers.
