Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a 16-year-old boy was robbed at knifepoint.

The boy was walking home from work along Midsummer Boulevard at 10.10pm on Saturday, and as he approached the junction of Saxon Gate opposite Midsummer Place shopping Centre, he saw two men dressed in black clothing.

Their hoods were pulled up and they were wearing black scarves across their faces and black gloves. They were walking away from Conniburrow.

One of the men grabbed the victim, turned him around, and demanded his mobile phone from him. He refused at first, but the second man then pulled a knife out and pointed at the victim and said ‘If you know what’s good for you, you will give me your phone.’

He then handed his phone over and the men ran off towards Conniburrow.

The stolen phone is a BlackBerry Curve 3G, with a silver metallic front and rubber on the back. It has a burn mark to the bottom of the back casing.

The offenders were both 6ft 3ins. One was average build and the other stocky. They both had brown eyes. The knife had a six inch blade.

Det Con Reg Jones, Burglary and Robbery Co-ordinator at Milton Keynes, said: “The victim was not hurt and did not require any medical treatment but was very shaken up and upset by this incident.”

Anyone who saw the robbery or the men hanging around the area at the time should contact Det Con Jones on 0845 8 505 505.
