Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery in Milton Keynes.

At around 7.10pm on Sunday (21/9), the victim, a man in his forties, was approached and punched by a man who attempted to steal his mobile phone in the car park at the corner of Witan Gate and Midsummer Boulevard.

The victim sustained injuries to the face and arm and required hospital treatment, but has since been discharged. The mobile phone was not stolen.

The offender is described as a black male in his twenties with thick dark hair, and was wearing a long sleeve light coloured top, a camouflage body warmer and blue jeans. He was also carrying an umbrella.

“In particular, I am appealing to an individual who may have been approached by the offender prior to the attempted robbery, as well as two people who I believe walked past as the offence was taking place.

“Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
