Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a robbery at around 1pm on Thursday (7/6) near to the shops in Brook End.

An elderly man passed two men, who were stood with a black scooter. They asked him for the time, but as he told them, they demanded that he hand over his wallet. One of the offenders then produced a knife.

The second offender was taller than the first man, with a skinny build.

He was wearing a dark blue, thin, waterproof type jacket. The jacket had a logo like an eye or diamond on the left side of the chest and stonewashed jeans.

They were riding a black Lambretta-style, scooter which was very rusty and had a small clear screen.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Gemma Howe, based at Aylesbury Police Station, said: “Although the victim was not injured in this incident, he was still left feeling shocked.

“I urge anyone who thinks they recognise this description, or who saw the offenders in the area to get in touch. Please review your dash cam footage if you were in surrounding area at about 1.00pm on Thursday.
