Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery in Aylesbury.
At about 1.40pm on Tuesday (6/2), four men entered Carphone Warehouse in High Street.
They attempted to steal mobile phones when they were interrupted by a member of staff. He was punched and kicked while the offenders continued to attempt to steal phones. The offenders then left the scene and nothing was stolen during the incident.
The member of staff, a 22-year-old man, sustained bruising to the face and was treated at the Stoke Mandeville Hospital but later discharged.
Detective Sergeant Kerry Bradfield, of Force CID based at Aylesbury police station, said: “This was a distressing incident for the victim, which resulted in him requiring hospital treatment.
“It happened in a high street store at a busy time of day, so there are many potential witnesses, and we are appealing for anyone with information that could help us catch the offenders to call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number, 101, quoting reference 43180039038.”
If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
