Two boys from Aylesbury have been arrested in connection with two robberies that happened in the town.

At around 9.15pm on Tuesday, February 9, a 29-year-old man was walking along the High Street when he was approached by two males who started a conversation with him.

After a couple of minutes, one of them then snatched a £10 note from his hand while the other took the remaining £5.

Less than 15 minutes later, at around 9.30pm, the suspects then approached two boys riding their bikes on Station Way West.

They forced the boys – aged 15 and 16 – to give them their bikes and rode away from the scene.
