Elderly Man Robbed In Milton Keynes

Elderly man suffers cuts after being robbed by two men holding a knife in Milton Keynes.

An elderly man has been threatened by two men with a knife in a house in Milton Keynes, where he was visiting friends.

It happened on Friday 28 March at around 12:30pm in Avebury Boulevard.

Police say the 61-year-old fended off the attackers, leaving him with cuts to his hand. The offenders made off with £25.

The victim had to go to Milton Keynes General for treatment.

Det Con Wayne Watson said: “This was an unprovoked attack on a lone, elderly gentleman who was visiting friends in the city. Had it not been for him fending off his attackers, the injuries could have been much worse. I am appealing to anyone with information to call 101 or Crimestoppers.”  

Supt Barry Halliday, LPA Commander Milton Keynes said: “I would like to reassure the community, that Thames Valley Police are pursuing every possible line of enquiry to ensure these offenders are captured and brought to justice for this isolated offence.”

Both the offenders were light-skinned, possibly white, aged about 25 years old. They were both 5ft 6ins tall of medium build and were wearing tracksuits, one of which was cream coloured.
