A teenager was attacked and robbed of cash as he walked in Hazlemere at the weekend.

The 19-year-old was walking on Amersham Road outside the Crown pub and the Trinity Church between 10.45pm and 11.15pm on Saturday, April 18, when a dark car passed him.

The car - which was a Volkswagen Golf or Polo - pulled into the church car park and two or three men got out and attacked the teenager, injuring his face, and stole cash and tried to steal his phone.

He was left with a bruised eye and cuts to his eye and head but he did not need to go to hospital.

The men then fled the scene in the car, heading towards High Wycombe.

The car did not have a numberplate on the front.

The people in the car were all men, wearing dark clothes and disposable gloves but there is no other description of them.
