| January 16, 2017

An appeal for information has been launched by Thames Valley Police after a 15 year old boy was the victim of an attempted robbery in Chesham.

At about 11.45am on Saturday14thJanuary 2017 the boy was waiting for a bus at the bus stop outside the Baptist church in The Broadway, Chesham when he was approached by three boys who threatened him with a knife and demanded he handover his rucksack.

The victim defended himself and fought off the offenders, who then ran from the scene. Nothing was stolen during the incident and the victim was not injured.

The offenders are described as Asian and are believed to be younger than 15 year old boy who was the victim of the attempted robbery. They were wearing dark clothing and had their faces covered.

Investigating officer, Det Con 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.
