At around 8.30pm, a 35 year old man, was delivering food just off Churchill Avenue in Aylesbury. The man was on a path on his bicycle that runs parallel to Prevendal Avenue. A man stepped in front of the victim and grabbed hold of the Deliveroo bag, stating that he wanted the contents. The food develiery man was then verbally threatened.
