Police are appealing for witnesses following a robbery in the Beanhill area of Milton Keynes.

The appeal relates to an incident that happened around 8.30pm on Sunday (28/6), when the victim was in a house on Lammas.

She heard a noise in the back garden, and found her fence panels being held up by two men while a third man in her garden was taking a motorbike. She went out and challenged them and tried to put the bike in the house.

Before she could do so, one of the three men grabbed the bike and pulled, causing her to fall to the ground.

A second man started to kick her leg and shouted at the other two men to grab the bike. A third man grabbed hold of the bike and took it from the garden.

The victim started to scream and the three men ran off with the bike. They went into the field next to Capron, started the bike and left in the direction of Netherfield.

The victim sustained minor injuries to her legs and hands but did not require hospital treatment.

The bike that was stolen is a blue Thumpstar off-road motorbike.

The first offender is described as a slim white man, aged between 17 and 20-years-old and approximately 5ft 6ins tall. He was wearing a light cream shell suit zip up jacket with the hood up and dark coloured trousers.  

The second offender is described as a slim black man, aged between 17 and 20-years-old and approximately 5ft 6ins tall. He has short black dreadlocks and was clean shaven. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded top, dark coloured tracksuit bottoms and dark coloured Nike Air Max style trainers. 

The third offender is described as a slim white man aged between 17 and 20-years-old, approximately 5ft 3ins tall and with short mousey brown hair.
