Milton Keynes taxi driver 'threatened with a firearm'


A taxi driver was threatened with what he believed to have been a handgun while he waited in Netherfield on Saturday night,

At around 12.40am on Saturday (August 10) a taxi driver has been parked up outside the Co-op store on Farthing Grove, when two men have approached his vehicle.

They have tapped on his window with what the victim believes was a handgun.

The man driving the taxi who had his doors locked, has then immediately driven off from the men. The offenders have then walked off.

Nothing was taken and no one has been injured. The offenders are described as two white men in dark clothing.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Hollie Cromarty of Force CID based at Milton Keynes, said: “This was a worrying incident in which a taxi driver was threatened by two men.

“We are carrying out a thorough investigation and reassurance patrols will be carried out in the area and the public may see an increased police presence whilst we continue our enquiries.
