Police Appeal for Witnesses following Mugging in Beaconsfield
Just after midnight on Sunday 5 February, when there had been considerable snowfall, a 31-year-old man was walking along the B474 Aylesbury End from the direction of Beaconsfield Old Town towards Beaconsfield New Town. As he passed the One Stop Shop, he was approached by three white youths, one of whom demanded he hand over his phone.
The victim refused and tried talking to the youths, which seemed to make the one who had made the demand angrier, so the victim threw his Black HTC Wild Fire phone onto the snow and they picked it up and ran off in the direction of the A40.
All three boys are about 17-years-old, white, and about 5ft 9ins.The one who demanded the phone is average build, with short light brown hair, and clean shaven. He was wearing a hooded top with the hood down and a jacket over the top.
The second youth, who did not say anything, was clean shaven and was wearing a green hooded top with the hood up and a jacket over his hooded top.
The third youth spoke to the victim when he was speaking to them and seemd unhappy with what the first youth was doing, telling the victim that 'he is not usually like this', referring to his friends behaviour. He was a bit shorter than his friends, with brown or gingerish curly hair and is slightly chubby.
The victim was not injured in the incident.
