Police have released a CCTV image of a man officers would like to speak to following a robbery in Stony Stratford.

The image release follows an incident that happened around 11:30am on Monday 17 June. The victim was a 65-year-old man, who collected cash from Nationwide in Stony Stratford and placed it into a carrier bag.

He left and walked towards Wolverton Road, but when he reached Wolverton Road, a white van pulled into the bus stop opposite the Chinese restaurant.

At this point, a man got out of the van and walked briskly towards the victim and started shouting at him. The man grabbed hold of the carrier bag containing the cash and pulled it from the victim’s grasp.

The man then got back into the van and drove off along Wolverton Road.

The van is described as a white Peugeot Partner van with a partial registration of NU** YHO.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Damien Freeman said, “I am releasing this CCTV image as I believe the man shown may have vital information about this offence.

“I would also like to ask anyone who may have dash-cam footage from the area at around 11.30am on Monday 17 June, to review their footage as they may have captured footage of the van or the man shown.

“I urge anyone who recognises this man to get in touch using our online form or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43190182430. Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
