Racially aggravated assault in Milton Keynes


A man was punched to the floor and then repeatedly kicked in the chest, ribs and back until a stranger intervened.

The 49-year-old suffered swelling to the left cheek, a cut to his inside lip, pain and swelling to his ribs, right shoulder and arm, and an injury to his ankle during the racially aggravated assault.

His phone and sunglasses were also damaged during the attack as he walked on a footpath in Caldecotte close to the Caldecotte Arms, adjacent to Bletcham Way.

Between 5.10pm and 5.25pm a group of people, including a teenage boy and a woman in her 50s, started pointing at him and making racist comments before one of them punched three or four times to his face and head, which caused him to fall to the ground.

He was then kicked in the chest, ribs and back by two of the males from the group but as a member of the public approached the offenders left the scene on foot in the direction of a car park.

The victim followed them and one of the offenders chased him but then retreated and the group got in an estate vehicle, which was metallic blue with alloy wheels and drove away.

One of the offenders was white, aged in his forties, of large build with short ginger hair. He was wearing shorts and black socks and was bare-chested. He spoke with a Newcastle accent.

Another offender was a white woman who was older than the man.

There was also a boy, also white, aged around 16 or 17 years old who had short blonde hair and was wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans.

The victim was treated at Milton Keynes General Hospital and has since been discharged.
