Delivery driver robbed in Bletchley

    Police are appealing for witnesses after a delivery driver was robbed of his van and parcels in Bletchley.

    At around 3pm yesterday (21/12) in Clifford Avenue, Bletchley the driver had parked his van near the entrance of Bagshot Court, so he could deliver packages. On his return to the vehicle, he was hit on the head by an unknown man.

    The offender, described as a black man, then got into the delivery van, a white Mercedes Vito van, index WR56BKL, and drove down Clifford Avenue, towards Water Eaton Road.

    The van was full of parcels worth just under £2,000.

    The victim, a man in his forties, was taken to Milton Keynes Hospital where he was treated after being hit on the head. He was later discharged.

    Investigating officer Detective Constable Kim McHugh said: “This robbery happened in the middle of the afternoon just as the driver was delivering parcels, presumably, considering the time of year, many were destined as Christmas presents.

    “After the driver was attacked, the offender then stole the van still full of parcels yet to be delivered. We are urging anyone who was in the area and may have seen someone acting suspiciously or seen the van drive off to contact us on 101 as a matter of urgency.”

    Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
