We are appealing for information after a robbery in Ripley in which a man had his car stolen.
The incident happened at around 1.30pm on Monday (4 July) in Sandham Lane, when the 66-year-old victim was approached by two men who threatened him and stole his car keys.
The pair then drove off in the victim’s blue Ford Focus which has (partial) number plate WG06.
The men are described as follows:
Robber 1 = white, approximately 5ft 5ins tall, with curly ginger hair and wearing a green Manchester United cap. He had a red, diamond shaped tattoo on his left cheek and was wearing a black jacker, dark green trousers and black trainers.
Robber 2 = white, wearing a white Manchester united cap, army camouflage colour bomber jacket, jeans and black trainers.
Both men are believed to be aged in their twenties.
We are very keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or who recognises the description of these men.
Anyone with private CCTV or dash cam installed in the area is also asked to check their footage to see if it has captured anything which may be useful to officers.
If you have footage that may be useful for officers, please ensure it is securely downloaded to another device and kept safely for them to view.
