Knife-wielding thug makes 'sexual demands' to girl walking her dog near Woburn Safari Park | The SunApril 17, 2023
COPS are hunting a knife-wielding thug who threatened a young girl with "sexual demands".
The child was approached while walking her dog in fields in Woburn Sands, Milton Keynes, between 3pm and 4pm on Thursday.
The terrifying ordeal happened between Woburn Sands and Old Farm Park, north of the railway track – just 15 minutes from Woburn Safari Park.
Officers say a thug with a knife approached her from behind, made a sexual demand towards her and threatened her with the weapon.
The victim reached for her phone to call for help and the offender ran off through the fields in the general direction of Old Farm Park.
The suspect is described as a white man, around 6ft tall, of lean build, with 10-15 brunette-coloured hairs above his top lip.
He was wearing mirrored goggle-style round-lensed glasses, a navy snood, a hooded, navy puffer coat, and nude-coloured cargo trousers with at least two sets of pockets on either side.
Cops say the knife was baby pink on the handle and blade.
Detective Sergeant Rob Lyne, of Milton Keynes CID, said: “This is a very concerning incident but one we are taking extremely seriously.
“Fortunately, the victim was not physically injured and there was no physical contact between her and the offender, but she has been offered our support.
