Two men pulled an imitation handgun on a driver before hitting him over the head with a metal pole.

Connor Harrison, aged 25, of HMP Bullingdon and Cameron Harrison, aged 20, of Green Lane, Wolverton have since been convicted for a number of crimes following the incident.

At around midnight, on February 7, Connor and Cameron Harrison were standing in Meads Close, New Bradwell, Milton Keynes, when a car drove towards them.

They approached the driver claiming he was trying to run them over and pulled an imitation handgun to the man's neck.

He was then hit over the head with a metal pole and demanded to hand over his car keys.

During the fight, damage was also caused to the man's car.

Upon his arrest later that day, Connor Harrison was found to be in possession of a Stanley knife.

Connor Harrison pleaded guilty to one count of attempted robbery at Amersham Crown Court on Wednesday (June 15).

At the same hearing, Cameron Harrison pleaded guilty to possession of an offensive weapon.

Connor Harrison pleaded guilty to one count of criminal damage and one count of possession of a bladed article at an earlier hearing.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Siobhan Jones, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “I would like to thank the victim in this case for the bravery they have shown throughout and I hope this conviction can provide some closure for them.

“I would also like to thank the witnesses who came forward and have helped to secure the conviction in this case.

“Violence and use of weapons will not be tolerated in the Milton Keynes area and I hope this conviction demonstrates the robust work of the Priority Crime team to target offenders who cause harm within our community.”

Connor and Cameron Harrison are due to be sentenced on August 11 at a court yet to be decided.
