Can you help (Witness appeals)
In the community
Investigating officers are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage of a robbery that took place in Kenilworth.
It happened as a man in his 50s was making deliveries in a white Transit van on Coventry Road around 12.40pm on Monday (18 July).
When he left the van, an unknown offender is reported to have got into it and tried to drive off.
The victim attempted to stop him through an open window but was thrown from the van as the suspect drove off towards Coventry.
Shortly afterwards, the van crashed into a ditch and the suspect left the area on foot. He is described as a white man, in his 20s, tanned, of stocky build with short brown hair.
The victim was taken to hospital but was later discharged having suffered leg injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening at this time.
Enquiries are currently ongoing and we’re asking anyone who witnessed the initial robbery or the collision to get in touch.
We’re particularly keen for anyone with dashcam footage to provide it to help with our investigation.
Anyone with information should report it online or call 101 quoting incident 295 of 18 July.
Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
