Milton Keynes attack leaves man robbed of cash and bike


A 27-year-old man was hit over the head after being forced to hand over cash to two men in Downs Barn Boulevard last week.

The victim sustained swelling to his left eye and a bloodied nose and was treated at Milton Keynes Hospital after the attack at around 9.45pm on Wednesday.

The offenders made off on the victim’s bike with his money after hitting him over the head, which knocked him to the floor.

The first offender is black, between 24 and 27-years-old, of average build and 5ft 8ins tall. He was wearing a black hooded top, black padded body warmer, black jogging bottoms and black trainers.

The only description of the second offender is that he was a black man wearing dark coloured clothing.

The victim’s stolen bike is a black and orange Saracen mountain bike with a black frame and orange front suspension forks. The bike has a skull and crossbones logo on it.

Police are appealing for witnesses who may have seen the offenders in the area or anyone acting suspiciously.
