An appeal for information has been launched by Thames Valley Police following an attempted robbery in Chesham in the early hours of Tuesday 12th January 2016.
At around 12.15am a man in his early thirties, the victim, was walking his dog along an alleyway in Deansway when he was approached by four young men.
The offenders asked the man to hand over his phone, when he refused they started to push and punch him. The victim fought off the offenders, but was pushed into a bush. The offenders then ran off empty-handed towards Darvill Drive.
All of the offenders were white and aged between about 16 and 18. They were all wearing dark clothing and one wore a dark Adidas hooded top and Adidas baseball cap. One of the offenders was riding a push bike, which was left behind at the scene.
Investigating Officer, PC Mark Turner, said: ‘This was a group of young men who may have been seen, or be known, in the local area. One of the offenders was riding a Grey/Black ‘Topeka’ dual suspension mountain bike which was left behind after they ran away from the scene.
