A MAN was threatened with a dangerous dog by two men as they robbed him.

At about 12.45pm last Friday (September 26), the 26-year-old victim was walking along Penryn Avenue, Fishermead, towards Pencarrow Place, when he was followed by two men with a dog.

As the victim was approaching his car the two men approached him, demanded his phone and threatened to release their dog.

One of the offenders raised his fist as if to punch the victim, at that point the victim handed over his black iPhone 4.

One of the suspects is black, between 15 and 20 years old, with a fresh looking complexion and sideburns which looked as if they were newly shaved. He was wearing a dark grey zip-up hooded top, lighter grey jogging bottoms and he was holding a pitt bull or Staffordshire bull Terrier type of dog, which had a white body with a brown patch over its left eye and smaller brown patches over its right eye and near its nose. The dog collar was a very thick metal chain.

The second suspect is white, between 15 and 22 years old, about 5ft 9ins, with light brown short hair. He was wearing a yellow baseball cap with navy lines on it, white trainers, which appeared to be old, and a round neck white T-shirt.

Det Con Wendy Cissell, from Milton Keynes police station, said: “I would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time or has any information that could lead to the identification of these suspects.”
