| August 29, 2015


At around 1.35pm on Friday 28th August 2015 a 25 year old man was at a bus stop in Holmers Farm Way, Booker, High Wycombe when a man carrying a Swiss Army knife approached him, threatened him and swung at him.

The offender did not make contact with the victim and then the offender walked away. The victim was not injured during the incident.

The offender is described as white, approximately 6ft 2ins, stocky, aged in his late twenties, with a bald head. Before the incident the offender got out of a white van which had red and blue lettering on its side.

Investigating officer PC Alex Trevivian, based at High Wycombe police station, said: ‘Officers are investigating the circumstances of the incident. It is not believed to be a random incident – and it is thought the victim was specifically targeted by the offender.

At the time of the incident there was an elderly couple sitting next to the victim, along with other people and children at the bus stop. I would like to speak to these people as it is likely they witnessed the incident and may have information which could assist our enquiries.

Although the victim was not injured, the incident was distressing for him and may have also been distressing for other members of the public waiting at the bus stop.

Thames Valley Police are appealing for anyone who may have any information about the incident that could help with their enquiries to please contact PC Trevivian via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.
