Man Sprayed In Face After Assault In MK

A man's been sprayed in the face with an unknown substance by two teenagers near Milton Keynes.

Thames Valley Police say it happened as he confronted two teenagers at the back of a house he was visiting in Great Brickhill.

The 55 year-old called at the address in Holts Green at 7pm last Friday, but nobody was in.

He noticed the two youths at the rear of the property. When he challenged them, one of the men sprayed an unknown substance at the victim's face before making off on foot.

The victim suffered stinging to the eyes and breathing difficulties but did not require hospital treatment.

The youths  were both white, aged in their mid-teens and wearing beanie hats.

Investigating officer, Det Con Bruce Wilson from Aylesbury Local CID is appealing for witness.

He said: "This was a nasty attack on a victim who happened to disturb the offenders as they attempted to break in to the property.

Fortunately he did not sustain serious injuries. Officers are making enquires to locate those responsible and I would urge anyone who has any information about this incident to call police on 101."
