Police appeal for witnesses to an attempted robbery and assault in Milton Keynes

    Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to an attempted robbery and assault in Milton Keynes.

    The incident occurred around 1pm on Monday (28/11) in an underpass near to Central Retail Park, Patriot Drive.

    The victim, a woman in her seventies, was walking through the underpass with her assistance trolley where she passed two boys who took an interest in her trolley. They asked the victim questions about how it worked, trying to distract her while they looked through her bag. The victim asked them to stop and the offenders hit her across the head with a branch they were holding.

    The victim received two black eyes and a cut to her eye, which required stiches. She attended Milton Keynes University Hospital and has since been discharged.

    Investigating officer Detective Constable Sebastian Kuzoe, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “We are looking to speak to anyone who saw this altercation occur or anyone who has any information in relation to this incident.

     “Please get in touch by either making a report online or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43220535856.

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