Bromsgrove Editorial 23rd Feb, 2022

POLICE in south Birmingham want people’s help in tracking down a woman caught up in a suspicious incident at 5pm yesterday evening.

She was seen arguing with a man on the Bunbury Road, near the junction of Overbury Road, and was seen being placed in a car before it sped off towards Northfield town centre.

Police are trying to trace the car and the man who was driving but as yet have been unable to track him down to find out what happened.

There are also concerns for the woman’s welfare.

The woman was black, in her 20s, and was wearing a short light-coloured puffa jacket.

The driver was also black.

Det Insp Gareth Snyman, West Midlands Police CID, said: “The incident took place during rush hour on a very busy road, although we don’t have any images or CCTV to share at the moment, we’re appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time who might have seen something to get in touch.

“We have been carrying out house to house enquiries and are continuing to trawl CCTV for any clues that might show what has taken place.

“This includes clarity on the make and model of the car.

“Our main concern is this woman’s safety. We would also appeal to the woman to get in touch if she sees this, so that we can make sure she is okay.”

Witnesses or anyone with information should share it via Live Chat at Alternatively, call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. Callers won’t be asked their names and calls cannot be traced.
