An appeal for witnesses has been launched by Thames Valley Police following a robbery in Chalfont St Peter.
On Tuesday 22nd December 2020, shortly after 3.00pm, a 39 year old male delivery driver was making a delivery to a property in Rickmansworth Lane, close to the junction with Ravensmead.
As the delivery driver was returning to his van he saw a man walking towards him with his hands behind his back. The delivery driver spoke to the man who pulled out a flick knife and ran to the driver’s side of the delivery van, got in and drove away. The delivery driver was not injured during the incident.
The man involved in the incident is described as white, aged approximately 35 to 45 years old, around 6ft tall, of large muscular build, with a square shaped face. He had light brown hair which was shaved on the back and sides and short and spikey on the top. He was wearing a plain light grey jumper and dark coloured trousers.
The van, a white Peugeot Boxer Van with the partial registration KN56, was stolen and remains outstanding.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Kerry Hall, based at Amersham police station, said: ‘I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed this offence or who has any details which could assist our investigation. This robbery has deprived the driver of his means to carry out his job and, no doubt, also the public whose Christmas presents have been stolen.‘
Thames Valley Police are appealing for anyone with any information about the incident to contact the 24-hour non-emergency number 101 quoting the reference 43200435768 or to make a report online. Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
