Police appeal after car jacking on the A38, Bromsgrove

Bromsgrove Editorial 12th Jan, 2018

A DELIVERY driver was taken to hospital as a precaution following a car jacking in Bromsgrove.

The incident took place at around 8.25pm yesterday (Thursday) on the A38 from Lydiate Ash to Bromsgrove.

A man in his 30s was in the process of a delivery when two men reportedly forcefully removed him from his grey Volkswagen Passat estate.

The offenders then took the victim’s phone before driving off along the A38 in the direction of junction one of the M42.

The victim attempted to stop the vehicle and suspects but was unsuccessful.

He was then seen to by the ambulance services and taken to hospital as a precaution.

Det Insp Gerry Smith, of West Mercia Police, said: “We are taking this incident very seriously as the car was taken by force from the victim.

“As a result of the vehicle being taken, the car boot had been opened and due to this the vehicle would’ve been distinctive to anyone who may have seen it driven.

“If you saw this vehicle or anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time, I would urge you to get in touch as a matter of emergency.”

Anyone with information should call the police on 101 and quote incident number 645s of January 11.
