Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a robbery in which a man had his mobile phone stolen in Milton Keynes yesterday (29/5).

At about 2.45pm, a 17-year-old bay was walking through Oldbrook, near to the Cricketers Arms pub, when he was approached by a man claiming to have a knife.

The man demanded the victim hand over his mobile phone. Having been given the phone, the offender ran off and a passer-by came to the aid of the victim.

The offender is white, aged between 18 and 20, about 5ft 9ins, and slim. He had light stubble around his jaw-line, short dark hair and was wearing a cream coloured base ball cap, a black Nike t-shirt, and black tracksuit bottoms.

Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the offence, recognises the description of the offender, or who saw the offenders in the area around the time of the incident.

Anyone with information should contact PC Gavin Toney at Milton Keynes police station, via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101.

If you don’t want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
