A scuffle ensued between the offenders, the victim and a customer.

The two offenders then ran off empty-handed, leaving the weapon at the scene.

The two victims were treated at the scene for injuries.

The 37-year-old man sustained minor cuts and grazes to arms and hands and a bruise and swelling to his forehead.

He was treated at Stoke Mandeville Hospital and discharged the same day.

The 76-year-old man suffered a cut to his nose, which was treated at the scene.

Police believe the offenders may also have received injuries.

The first offender is mixed race, in his twenties, between 5ft 6ins to 5ft 9ins and slim.

He was wearing a dark-coloured hooded top and beige face covering and spoke with an English accent.

The second offender is white, aged in his late twenties to mid-thirties, approximately 5ft 10ins to 6ft and had very short hair, crooked teeth and moustache.

He was wearing an orange T-shirt and dark jeans and spoke with an English accent, possibly northern.

Investigating officer PC Justine Haw of Aylesbury CID said: “We are keen for anyone who may have seen two men acting suspiciously in the area at the time to get in touch.

“It is fortunate that the two victims were not more seriously injured.

“A silver Ford Mondeo was seen in the area at the time and it is believed the offenders made off in it.

“In addition the two offenders are likely to be injured.

“With this in mind we would be keen to hear from anyone in the area or anyone who recognises the men from the description.

“Anyone with information or concerns about this incident is asked to call 101.”
