An elderly man has been threatened and his wedding ring stolen during a burglary in Milton Keynes. The 82 year old was home alone in Middlesex Drive in Bletchley on Tuesday 4th April - when he noticed a number of men in his garden.

When the victim tried to call the police - one of the offenders ripped the phone out of the wall - and pulled a gold chain from his neck and his wedding ring. The offenders searched the rest of the house for about twenty minutes before leaving the property with a large amount of other items of jewellery.

Subramaniam Vijayaratnam, known as VJ, says he's glad his family weren't caught up in it.

"I think if I had reacted - or if my children or my wife had been there, they would of reacted and had some sort of injury.

Fortunately I didn't suffer any physical injury as such..Mentally, oh god, I cant describe it... Everytime I think about it."

VJ's now sending a warning to others to be wary and that the ordeal could happen to them:

"I had the attitude it can't happen to me. No, it can happen to anybody.

Please be careful. Do not take anything as a matter of fact."

Thames Valley Police is making an appeal for information.

PC Bigg said "The first offender is white, in his early to mid thirties, about 5ft 4ins and slim. He was wearing a dark coloured baseball cap with a multi coloured checked face covering that went up to just under his eyes. He was also wearing a light coloured long sleeve checked shirt, blue jeans which had signs of wear and blue trainers with three white stripes down the side. He was carrying what appeared to be a 10in screwdriver.

"The second offender is white, in his late teens or early twenties, over 6ft and slim to athletic build. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a black face covering that went up to just under his eyes, a black long sleeve top, black trousers and black trainers with white stripes.

"The third offender is white, in his late teens to early twenties, about 6ft 1ins, clean shaven and slim. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a long sleeve black shirt, black trousers and black trainers with white stripes.

"I believe the offenders may have used an alleyway that leads into Cornwall Grove where a getaway vehicle might have been parked. I would like to speak to anyone who saw an unknown vehicle parked in the area on Tuesday 4 April.
