Man Forced To Drive Another Man Around Aylesbury

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses who may have seen the occupants of a vehicle acting in a suspicious manner in Aylesbury on Friday night.

Sometime between 9.45pm and 10.30pm a man was driving along the A 413 Wendover Road when he saw a vehicle, described as a dark coloured hatchback, with two male occupants, parked between the Hampden Hall roundabout and junction with Station Road.

The man stopped to ask if they wanted help and they demanded he get back into his car, accompanied by one of the men. They drove around for a short while and then the victim, stopped the car and escaped. His passenger then made off empty-handed.

One of the offenders is described as medium build, 5ft 8ins with short brown hair.

Det Sgt Tracey Benham of Aylesbury Police Station said:

“At this stage we do not believe this was a random attack. Information from the victim suggests that the offenders knew who he was. It was fortunate he was uninjured during the incident.

“At this stage we are still trying to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident and so would ask that anyone who was in the area and saw a dark coloured hatchback parked or saw the victim’s car, a W-reg silver Toyota Previa, to contact us as a matter of urgency.”

If you have any information please contact Det Sgt Benham via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.

If you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
