Thames Valley Police has shared an e-fit of a man that officers would like to speak to in connection with a robbery and stabbing in Bletchley.

At around 3pm on Friday 15 January, a 17-year-old boy saw his bicycle being taken by two men in Suffolk Close. Seeing this, a 40-year-old man cycled after the two men and caught up with them near to Middlesex Drive.

The man challenged the two men and one of them punched him in the face and then stabbed him in the stomach.

They then ran away in the direction of Cornwall Grove, leaving the bicycle.

The victim sustained a cut to his stomach and received treatment at Milton Keynes University Hospital. He has since been discharged.

The first offender, depicted in the e-fit image, is described as a mixed-race man, aged around 18 to 19-years-old. He is approximately 6ft 2ins to 6ft 3ins tall and of an athletic build. He was wearing a puffa-jacket and trainers.

The second offender is described as a man, approximately 5ft 9ins tall. He was wearing a dark jacket with the hood up, dark trousers and had a black backpack and a dark-coloured mask.
