A 20-YEAR-OLD man was assaulted and robbed during an early morning attack in Buckingham this weekend.

At around 2.45am on Saturday, August 25, he was walking along Nelson Street when a man approached him from behind and cut his back with an unknown instrument.

The man turned to defend himself and a fight broke out, but the robber escaped after stealing a mobile phone and a wallet.

The victim sustained a superficial wound to his back and a small cut to his face which required treatment at Milton Keynes General Hospital. He has since been discharged.

There is no description available of the robber.

Anyone who was in the area and witnessed the attack or any suspicious activity should contact PC Thomas Booth via the 24-hour police enquiry centre on 101.
