Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to a robbery in Milton Keynes

    After a robbery in Milton Keynes, a man has been left with life threatening injuries, including a bleed on the brain, fractured eye-socket, two skull fractures and cuts and bruises to his body.

    At around 9.56pm on Thursday 30 May, the victim, a man in his thirties, parked a black Range Rover on the green part of the Co-op on Maslin Drive and entered the shop.

    The victim returned and found a man had entered the rear nearside of the car and threatened him with an item that was covered with a black and white plastic bag. They exited the vehicle and an altercation took place. The victim was then assaulted, causing him to fall backwards and hit his head on the concrete. The offender then steals the vehicle and makes off.

    The victim suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to the John Radcliffe hospital to have emergency surgery to alleviate a bleed on the brain. The victim also sustained a fractured right eye-socket, two separate skull fractures and various superficial cuts and bruises on his body.
