Three robbery offences took place in Milton Keynes on Friday (15/2) between 7pm and 8.30pm.
The first offence happened at around 7.20pm. The offenders, a group of teenage boys, approached another group of teenagers outside Xscape. They were followed across Avebury Boulevard and when outside the Food Centre, an unsuccessful attempt was made to pull a rucksack from the back of the first victim, a 16-year-old boy.
At around 7.40pm, the group of teenage boys approached the second victim, a 16-year-old boy, in the area of the Food Centre. They threatened him with a knife and stole his wallet.
At around 8pm, the group of teenage boys approached three teenage boys, all 16 years old, at the bike-racks near to the Intu Centre. They threatened the third victim with a knife, punched him and stole his bicycle.
None of the victims required hospital treatment.
