Guns and knives

A 73-YEAR-OLD man was threatened with a knife during a robbery in a Bletchley alleyway on Sunday.

At around 4pm he was walking down an alley way off Kincardine Drive leading to Ayr Way when he was approached by three men on the grass area in between Kincardine Drive and Pebbles Way.

They asked how he was in a friendly manner then crowded around him before one of the men pulled out a knife from his right wrist band and pointed it towards him.

A second man then took £140 cash from his pocket, whilst the man with the knife told him to remove his two rings which he did.

The offenders then walked back towards the grass area next to Pebbles Place.

The men are all black.
