Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a robbery on Wednesday.

At around 11.05am, a 25-year-old woman was walking back from the Post Office in Greenleys, having withdrawn some money.

As she walked along the Redway next to the Western Road Recreational Ground, she counted her cash, and two men approached her, demanding the money and then threatened her with a knife.

The men stole £95 from the woman.

Both of the offenders were Asian. The first is between 18 to 25 years old, around 5ft 7ins, of medium build, with dark hair styled in a crop with shaved back and sides, with stubble on his cheeks, chin and top lip. He was wearing a white T-shirt with a Nike tick logo on the left chest area, grey jogging bottoms and training shoes.

The second man was around 17 years old, about 5ft 4ins, and of a stocky build with a similar hairstyle to the other man. He was wearing a white polo shirt with the collar up and black denim jeans.

The victim was not injured.

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

Anyone with any information should contact PC Scott Dempsey via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Line on 101.
