Deaf & Blind Austistic Man Robbed In MK

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to a street robbery in which a vulnerable man who is blind, deaf and autistic, was left with a black eye.

The attack took place at around 11pm on Monday (Nov 17) just outside thecentre:mk, in Milton Keynes, at bus stop H3, across the road from McDonald’s.

The offender also stole cigarettes from the victim, who also received a cut to one of his eyebrows. The offender then ran off in the direction of McDonald’s.

Two men who were walking their dog stopped to help the victim about an hour later and called the police for him.

Investigating officer Det Con Lisa-Marie Flitter said:

"While we have the details of the two men walking their dog, there is still a 30-minute window up to 1130pm in which officers would like to identify any further witnesses.

At the time that these two witnesses stopped to assist, the victim was shouting out for help, so it may be that someone else will have heard him before that and therefore might have seen the offender.

I am appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have seen the offender, or who may have seen someone acting suspiciously during that time near the bus stop to report this to us."

If you have any information that can assist the investigation, please contact Det Con Flitter on the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre phone number 101.
