Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery in Bracknell.

At 1.30pm on Wednesday 26 February, three men on a moped attempted to take the backpack of a man who was walking along the underpass between The Brakenhale School and Friendship Way and Old Bracknell Lane East. The victim was pushed before two of the men left on the moped. Nothing was taken and the victim has not yet been identified.

One of the offenders is described as a white man, around 5ft7ins, with short brown hair. He was wearing a grey coat and had a black scarf over his face, and was on a red motorbike with learner plates.

Investigating officer PC Victoria McNicholas, based at Loddon Valley police station, said: "This would have been a frightening experience for the victim and I am urging anyone who believes they may have any information to come forward.

"If you can help with our investigation, you can use our online reporting form or contact the 24-hour non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 43200066599.

"Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111."
