Appeal for witnesses following teen robbery at Middleton Pavilion

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed in Milton Keynes.

At approximately 10pm last night (23/9), the victim, a man aged in his late teens, was waiting at Middleton Pavilion in Worrelle Avenue, Middleton for his father to pick him up.


Whilst waiting, a man approached the victim asking whether he could book him a taxi.


The victim declined, pointing the offender in the direction of a group of 20 to 30 people standing nearby.


As the victim turned away, the offender has grabbed him by the collar, demanding his property.


The victim removed his necklace, which the offender snatched from his hand before making off on a black electric scooter in the direction of Tanfield Lane, Broughton.


The victim did not sustain any injuries.


The offender is described as a black man, of skinny build and around 6ft 2ins tall.


He was wearing grey jogging bottoms and a black puffer style jacket and black hooded top with the hood up.


He was also wearing gloves and had a black cross-body style bag.

“I am aware that there were a number of people in the car park of Middleton Pavilion, and I have no doubt that some of these will have witnessed this incident.
