He left the scene, but quickly returned wearing a different top and rode directly at them, continued to verbally abuse them and spat in their direction.

The offender is described as black, in his late teens to early 20s and of average height and slim build.

He was wearing a white baseball cap and a white top with a big blue band across it, as well as a scarf across his face.

Investigating officer PC Grant Hebblewhite, from Milton Keynes police station, said: “This incident left both women shaken to the extent that the 80-year-old victim no longer wants to go walking outside.

“No-one should feel scared to leave their own home and we need to identify this man to make sure he doesn’t repeat this kind of behaviour.

“Anyone who believes they witnessed the incident or saw him in the area should contact us as soon as possible.”
