Two men have jumped out of bushes and used a knife to rob a couple in the Furzton area of Milton Keynes.

At midnight on Thursday (2/7) a man and a woman were walking in Twitchen Lane, Furzton. At the end of the road they walked through some trees and turned right on to a redway next to Bickleigh Crescent. After walking for several minutes, two men jumped out from a gap in the bushes.

The first man demanded the phones of both the man and woman however they refused. The same man then punched the male victim, causing him to fall to the floor.

He then straddled the man and continued to punch him before taking out a knife and threatening him. The second offender did not talk during the incident and stopped the woman from helping the man.

The male victim sustained concussion, swelling and bruising to his face and attended Milton Keynes General Hospital from where he has since been discharged. The man’s wallet was stolen in the incident which contained a driving licence, a cash card and quantity of cash.

Both offenders then ran off in the direction of Redhuish Close.

The first offender is described as white, with a pale complexion. He is 6ft 2ins, has short black hair which was flattened, a black beard and moustache. At the time he was wearing black tracksuit trousers and a plain grey t-shirt.

The second man is also white and had a tanned complexion. He is of muscular build, and had a bald head. He was wearing a grey v-neck vest top, white shorts and off-white espadrilles.

Det Con Wendy Cissell, from Milton Keynes Priority Crime Team, said:

"I would like to speak to anyone who saw what happened or anyone who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at around the time of the robbery.

Officers are working to identify and locate the offenders and I would encourage anyone with any information which could assist with enquires to speak to police."

Anyone with any information about the incident should contact DC Cissell via the 24hr Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.
