Attempted car-jacking


A driver was threatened with a knife by a man who flagged him down in Henley Rise last night.

He was driving his blue Ford Focus RS at 8.15pm when two men flagged him down and one of them opened the driver’s door.

The would-be robber demanded the car and threatened the victim with a knife but he drove off, leaving the offenders in the street.

The first offender is described as a white man, about 25, who spoke with an Irish accent and the second was similar but with slightly longer hair. Call 101 with information.
