A man who was locking up a Milton Keynes convenience store was pounced on by two robbers demanding cash and cigarettes from the shop.

The victim, a 31-year-old man, was helping to lock up Orbit News Convenience licence store in Farady Drive, Shenley Lodge on March 19 when the robbery occurred.

He was at the rear of the store at about 10.10pm when two unknown men jumped out at him.

The men grabbed him and demanded money and cigarettes from the store.

The offenders were unable to gain access to the store so stole keys to the victim’s vehicle, a blue Toyota Corolla, and drove off in the car.

The victim sustained a black eye, swollen lip and a cut to the back of the head and was taken to Milton Keynes General Hospital for treatment.

Both offenders are white men who were wearing dark coloured tops and balaclavas.
