Did you see a robbery by two men in Bradwell on Monday (20/12)?

Alert message sent 21/12/2016 11:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

At around 10.20pm, the victim, a 17-year-old boy, was using his phone in the park area behind Bradwell Common Food and Wine shop, in Bradwell Common Boulevard, when he was approached by a man who asked to use his phone.  
The victim agreed and followed this man to an alleyway where a second man stood. The victim gave his phone to the second man, who dialled a number and returned the phone to the victim.  
The first man placed a hand around the victim’s throat while the second man produced a knife and threatened him. The first offender punched the victim in the eye and the second offender punched him in the mouth.  
The victim gave his wallet, containing cash, bank cards and ID, to the offenders, after which the second offender hit the victim in the back of the head with the handle of the knife and demanded that he left. The victim sustained a cut to his lip which is also swollen, and reddening to the area of his right cheek and eye. 
The first offender is white, between around 5ft 7ins-5ft 9ins, slim, no more than about 20 years of age, with short hair that was slightly blonde with possibly a stubbly beard. He was wearing a jacket which possibly had a hooded-top and was possibly grey, blue denim jeans and sports shoes. 
The second offender is black, between around 5ft 7ins-5ft 9ins, slim, no more than 20 years of age. He had short, black, Afro-style hair and a short, black, Afro-style beard that was bigger than the white offender’s beard. He was wearing a dark blue or black jacket that was of similar material to a Superdry jacket. He was possibly wearing jeans.  
Police would especially like to speak to a girl or woman who may have witnessed the offence. This person spoke to the victim immediately after the offence. 
Anyone with any information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
