Police are appealing for witnesses following an assault in the Wolverton area of Milton Keynes.

The appeal relates to an incident took place on Sunday (08/07) at the junction of Church Street and Anson Road, at about 10.55pm.

The victim, a 30-year-old man, was walking when he was approached by two men. They demanded money, and the victim told them he did not have any.

One of the men then threatened the victim with a knife, and the men then tried to grab his bag. The victim resisted and sustained six stab wounds. The offenders stole the victim’s wallet and then ran down an alleyway parallel to Church Street, near to Wyvern School.

The victim sustained stab wounds to his abdomen, thigh and calf. He also sustained an eye injury, and was taken to hospital for treatment. He has since been discharged.

The offenders are both black men and are believed to be in their late teens or early twenties. One of them was wearing a black zip up hooded top with a white zip and white drawstrings.

Before the incident occurred, the suspects were seen outside Agora, opposite the Queen Victoria pub, and it is believed that they followed the victim as he walked along Church Street.

Investigating officer DC Jacqueline Baverstock said, “The victim of this incident has sustained serious injuries, and we are working to locate these offenders. Even though this incident happened late at night, there were some people in the area of the Agora when the two offenders were there.

“If anyone has any information relating to it, I would ask that they please contact the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101.”

People with any information relating to this case can help the inquiries by calling 101 quoting reference ‘43170201280’
