A man was left with facial injuries following a robbery in Hazlemere on Saturday 18th April 2020.

Between 10.45pm and 11.15pm, a 19 year old man was walking along Amersham Road in Hazlemere. A dark coloured Volkswagen Golf or Polo, which was missing the front number plate, passed the 19 year old man as he walked by the Crown Public House and Trinity Church.

The vehicle pulled into the car park of Trinity Church and the 19 year old man passed by heading towards High Wycombe.

The assailants left the scene in their vehicle, heading in the direction of Wycombe. Those involved in the assault are all believed to be men who were wearing dark clothing and disposable gloves.

During the assault the 19 year old man suffered a bruised eye and superficial cuts to his eye and head. However he did not require hospital treatment.
