Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after an assault resulting in serious injuries in Watereaton Road, Bletchley.

Police say at around 10.30pm last night (Wednessday) the victim, a 26 year-old man, drove his red Vauxhall Corsa car into a car park located on Watereaton road and was approached by three men, who were unknown to him.

The men demanded that the victim get out of the car and stabbed him, in the chest and wrist, with a bladed article forcing him to do so. Once he got out of the car, the offenders took the victim’s vehicle and left the scene.

The first offender was around 5ft 8ins, wearing a black face covering, in his late teens with jeans, black trainers and a jacket.

The second offender was white, also in his late teens with a black moustache and beard. He was wearing blue jeans and a blue baseball cap.

The third offender had a dark complexion, around 5ft 7ins tall, of skinny build wearing blue jeans and a black hooded top.

The victim received serious injuries to his chest and wrist and was taken to Milton Keynes General Hospital for treatment, where he remains in a stable condition.

Investigating officer, Det Sgt Phil Turner-Robson said: “We are appealing for anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area around the mosque on Watereaton Road last night, to call our non-emergency number 101."

Acting LPA Commander for Milton Keynes, A/Supt Jim O’Ryan said: “Incidents such as these are rare in our area and I would like to reassure the local community that we have extra patrols in the neighbourhood, who can address their concerns.

Although this took place in the car park of a local mosque, we do not believe that the incident is in anyway related to the mosque. I would also like to thank the community there who have cooperated fully with police during the disruption to their facilities that our investigations have required."

Anyone with information that may assist the investigation, should contact Det Sgt Phil Turner-Robson of Milton Keynes Force CID on the non-emergency number 101.
