Police appeal for witnesses following bus incident between Milton Keynes and Buckingham

    Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a public order incident on a bus, which happened on Wednesday (13/10).

    Between 5pm and 5.56pm a teenage girl got on the X5 Cambridge to Oxford bus at Milton Keynes bus station.

    The girl went to sit on the top deck of the bus.

    Two men were sitting on the bus, who were being loud and anti-social.

    The victim asked them to stop as it was causing distress to the other passengers. The men then verbally abused her using derogatory language, and made sexual threats to her.

    As the bus travelled to Buckingham the victim went down stairs to tell the bus driver who advised her to get off at the next stop.

    The driver also went to speak to the men and was also abused.

    The victim got off the bus at Buckingham High Street, but the men followed her and abused her again.

    She then called the police. Officers arrived and the men were arrested.

    During the arrest the men tried to resist, with one kicking and spitting at the officers. They also continued to abuse members of the public.

    No one was injured as a result of this incident.

    Investigating officer PC Ross Acland, based at Aylesbury police station, said: “The behaviour of these men caused distress to the victim and those on the bus.

    “We have arrested two men in connection with this incident, but we are appealing for the public’s assistance in our investigation.

    “We would ask anyone who was on the X5 bus between Milton Keynes and Buckingham High Street, to please get in touch if they witnessed this incident.

    “Additionally we are also asking for anyone with information in relation to the incident on Buckingham High Street, where the two men continued to abuse the victim, to come forward.

    “Anyone with information should call 101 or go online quoting reference 43210462267.”
