The 23-year-old was walking in Queens Road between about 4:30am and 4:45am on Wednesday December 31, when he became aware of two men walking behind him. He continued on his journey, only to be approached by the two men, described as being Asian, at the junction of Shackleton Road and Carrington Road, Slough.
One of the two men produced a knife and demanded that the victim hand over his belongings.
The two men managed to steal a blue and grey Nike rucksack, cash and a red Hewlett Packard laptop during the incident.
PC Zoe Bryant of local CID based at Slough and investigating officer, said: “If you have been offered a blue and grey Nike rucksack or a red Hewlett Packard laptop since New Year’s Eve, or have any other information about the offence then please contact the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101. This was an extremely frightening experience for the victim, so I ask anyone with any information to contact police immediately so we can bring the perpetrators to justice.
