Robbery in Slough

Thames Valley Police is releasing two E-fit images of men that could have vital information following a robbery in Slough.

On Wednesday 22 July at around 5.30pm, a 44 year old man was in Lascelles Park in Slough, when he was approached by four males.  One of the males was carrying a knife, which he pulled out to threaten the victim.

The group demanded the man’s electric scooter before assaulting him by flicking the sunglasses from his face and pulling the strap on his bag hard enough to cause him to fall to the floor.

As he fell, the victim’s phone and wallet fell from his pocket, which were then taken from him. The sunglasses were also taken.  The offenders also tried to take the victim’s scooter, however he managed to get it back from them and it remained in his possession.

Police advise that there were no serious physical injuries sustained by the victim and are appealing for help to find the men involved.

One of the offenders is described as having a Scottish accent and aged between 16-18 years old. He was around 5ft 7ins tall, with a ginger beard and a muscular build.

The second offender was a mixed race male, around 16-years-old who was around 5ft 7ins tall and of a slim build. He spoke in a local accent.

Another of the offenders was a black male aged approximately 15-16-years old, and there is currently no description available of the fourth offender.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Alexandra Phillips, of Slough police station, said: ”
