Teen boy threat­ened with knife

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A 15 YEAR-OLD boy was threat­ened with a knife out­side the Bap­tist church in The Broad­way, Che­sham on Satur­day Jan­uary 14.

Three boys with their faces cov­ered, be­lieved to be younger than the vic­tim, ap­proached him at about 11.45am while he was wait­ing at the bus stop.

The boys threat­ened him with a knife and de­manded that the vic­tim turn over his ruck­sack.

The vic­tim de­fended him­self and the of­fend­ers ran from the scene.

Noth­ing was stolen in the in­ci­dent and the vic­tim did not sus­tain any in­juries. The of­fend­ers are be­lieved to be Asian and wore dark cloth­ing with their faces cov­ered.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer, De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Mark Ban­ham of Lo­cal CID, said: “This was a fright­en­ing in­ci­dent for the vic­tim who was threat­ened with a knife, but he bravely fought off the of­fend­ers who then fled the scene on foot.

“I am con­fi­dent that some­one will know who the of­fend­ers are, ei­ther by the de­scrip­tions or be­cause they have men­tioned the in­ci­dent to a friend or rel­a­tive.

“If you have any in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent please con­tact the po­lice by calling 101 and stop these of­fend­ers from at­tempt­ing to rob other vic­tims.

“If you do not want to speak di­rectly to the po­lice you can con­tact the in­de­pen­dent char­ity Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
