Two linked robberies in Aylesbury have resulted in an appeal for witnesses by Thames Valley Police.
On Tuesday 9th February 2021, at around 9.15pm, a 29 year old man was walking along the High Street in Aylesbury when he was approached by two men who started a conversation with him.
After a couple of minutes, one of the men snatched a £10 note from the hand of the 29 year old man while the other took £5.
Less than 15 minutes later, at around 9.30pm, the two men then approached two boys, aged 15 and 16, who were riding their bikes on Station Way West. The two men forced the boys to give them their bikes and rode away from the scene. Both bikes have since been recovered.
