Two men grabbed a woman while she was walking her dog and forced her to have a photograph taken with them.

The 23-year-old was walking in Alfred Rose Park in Dunsham Lane, Aylesbury, at 3.15pm yesterday afternoon when she was approached by the two men.

They asked her for a picture, but when she refused they grabbed her and forced her to stand still while they took a photograph before she managed to escape.

Police have confirmed they are investigating the incident and are treating it as ‘assault without injury’.

Posting on Facebook site The Aylesbury Grapevine, the victim said: “I was approached by two men who kept saying ‘picture picture’, but when I refused one of them grabbed me and pulled me to the ground.

“They also grabbed the dog’s collar and pulled her while the other took pictures.

“I was left badly shaken and with a bruise on my waist. The police were informed, they swabbed me and took my hoodie as evidence and are now looking for these two men. I hope they get caught before they do it again.”

The victim said that both men were talking in a foreign accent. She described the first as around 6ft with short brown hair and wearing a purple polo shirt with a small logo on the left hand side and jeans.

The other was around 5ft 8 with short brown hair and wearing a white short-sleeved T-shirt with a pattern on and jeans. He was holding two iPhones.

If anyone saw anything that could help the investigation, call non-emergency number 101.
