Police are looking for two riders on a moped following an attempted robbery in Gerrards Cross on Wednesday 17th October 2018.

The man walked along the alleyway leading to South Park Drive. Upon exiting the alleyway the man heard a moped approaching him on South Park Drive.

One of the moped riders tried to grab hold of a bag the man was carrying, however the man kept hold of the bag and was able to push the rider off the moped and the moped fell to the floor.
