A man's been robbed at knife-point in Chesham, with two men stealing his car.

He got out of his car, was hit over the head with a bottle, tried to get his car keys but was threatened with a knife - the two men then drove off.

This all happened on Greenway Parade on Sunday evening (8.30pm).

What happened exactly?

  • The victim got out of his car 
  • A man approached him from behind and hit him over the back of his head with a drinks bottle
  • A second man then got into the car
  • The victim tried to get hold of his keys, which were in the ignition
  • The first man threatened him with a knife
  • The first offender then got into the car and they drove off towards Upper Belmont Road.


The two men have been described as similar in appearance, approximately 5ft 7ins, in their early twenties and wearing dark hoodies.

The investigating officer, Det Con Jagdip Sekhon of Taplow Local CID, said

“I would like to speak to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and may have witnessed the incident.

“Anyone who recognises the description of the two men should get in touch via the Thames Valley enquiry centre on 101.”

If you do not want to speak to the police directly, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
