A 23-YEAR-OLD has been robbed at knifepoint for just £3.

At 4.30pm on Saturday, a 23-year-old man was walking with his friend along McConnell Drive, Wolverton, towards the city centre, when a man walked towards them from the opposite direction and asked for some money so he could get to London.

The victim told the offender he didn’t have any change, at which point the offender started shouting and placed a small knife to the throat of the victim, telling him to empty his pockets.

The victim gave £3 and the offender left the scene without harming the victim.

The offender is a white man, aged around 25-years-old. He was between 5ft 10ins and 6ft, of medium build and has a scruffy appearance with stubble and long dark hair tied back. He was wearing light coloured trousers, a dark hooded top and a metal necklace with a single blue feather surrounded by smaller feathers.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the offence, which left the victim shaken and upset. They would also like to hear from anyone who saw the offenders or the incident take place.

Anyone with any information should contact Det Con Samantha Reynolds via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Line on 101.
