A man's been arrested after a woman was robbed of her car in High Wycombe.

At around 2.30pm on Sunday (9/7) at Morrison's petrol station, Bellfield Road, the victim parked her vehicle, a light blue Fiat 500, on the forecourt to fill the tyres with air.

As she did so a man got into her car.

The victim has struggled with him and he has then driven the car at speed with the victim still holding onto the driver's open door.

She was dragged across the forecourt as the vehicle was driven off. It was last seen heading along Parker Knoll Way towards Glenister Road.

The victim sustained cuts and bruises.

Yesterday (16/7) a 32-year-old man of no fixed abode was arrested in High Wycombe on suspicion of robbery in connection with this incident.

He remains in custody.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant James Faulkner, based at High Wycombe Police station said:

"It was very fortunate that the victim was not seriously injured.

"The reckless actions of the offender could have resulted in serious injury to the victim and onlookers as he drove."

Anyone with any information about the incident and who has not yet spoken to the police is asked to call 101 and quote 43170201779.
