Police are appealing for information after a man was robbed by knife-wielding thugs in Chesham this weekend.

At around 8.30pm on Sunday, a man got out of his car and was then struck with either a drinks bottle or can on the back of his head.

Whilst one of the thieves got into the victim's car and tried to get the keys out of the ignition, the other threatened the victim with a knife.

The two men then drove off in the direction of Upper Belmont Road.

The offenders were described to have been similar in appearance - around 5ft 7ins, in their early 20s and wearing dark hoodies.
