At about 7.00pm on Tuesday 24th February 2015 a 21 year old man was robbed in an alleyway that runs from Hughenden Avenue to Bellfield Road.

The victim entered the alleyway and was struck from behind as he drew level with the garages. The blow knocked the victim to the ground, where he was then kicked and punched in the face.

Two offenders took the victim’s Nokia Lumia mobile phone and cash, before running in the direction of Hughenden Avenue.

The victim was treated at Wycombe General and Stoke Mandeville hospitals but has since been discharged after suffering bruising to the back of his head and nose, an injury to his right eye and concussion.

The first offender is described as white, in his teens, about 5ft 6ins and medium build. He was wearing a dark coloured jacket, which had ‘Duffer’ written across the chest in brown, and a white scarf covering the lower part of his face.

The second offender is described as mixed race or Asian, in his teens, about 5ft 6ins and very slim. He was wearing a dark hoodie with the hood up and cords pulled tight to conceal his face, and green trousers.

Both offenders had local accents.
