Images of a man police would like to speak to in relation to a robbery in Milton Keynes have been released.

It happened at around midday on Tuesday, May 18 in The Croft.

A man in his thirties had arranged to meet another man to collect some mobile phones that he was selling.

The man that came to collect them subsequently grabbed the phones and ran away.

The seller followed him and saw the man get into a hatchback car.

He then jumped into the boot of the car and it sped off.

The car then stopped and the man who stole the phones, along with three others, got out and assaulted the victim.

During the assault, the victim was hit with a pole.

He sustained bruising to his body that required hospital treatment and has since been discharged.
