Police hunt three men after victim sustains stab wound during robbery in Milton Keynes

    Police are now appealing for witnesses following a robbery involving knives, and potentially a firearm.

    At around 11.30pm on Monday (22/2) three men were in a parked car in a residential car park in Oxley Park, by Harlow Crescent and Crawford Way, when they were approached by three men.

    The men outside the car started shouting at the victims and opened the car doors. They demanded items to be handed over and searched the car, taking cash from within, then ran off towards Harlow Crescent and Crawford Way.

    Following the incident, one of the victims found that he had sustained a stab wound to his leg. He received treatment at Milton Keynes University Hospital and has since been discharged.

    The first offender is described as a skinny white man, aged 19 to 20-years-old and approximately 5ft 8ins to 5ft 11ins tall. He was wearing a dark coloured hoodie and a black face covering with a white pattern.
