An appeal for witnesses has been launched by Thames Valley Police after a boy was kidnapped in High Wycombe.
On Friday 29th October 2021, at approximately 3.30pm, a 16 year old boy was in the Loudwater area of High Wycombe when he was approached by a group of men and forced to get into a dark blue car.
The 16 year old boy was taken to another location and returned home several hours later having been assaulted. An iPhone 12 and a body warmer were stolen from the 16 year old boy.
During the incident the 16 year old boy sustained a laceration to his right hand, a large cut to his cheek, which required stitching, as well as lumps to his head. He also lost two molar teeth and had his hair cut. The boy required hospital treatment for these injuries, however he has since been discharged.
The group of men involved were dressed in black, however at the current time no further description available.
