Police appeal after 'carjacking' incident near Milton Keynes

    Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to a robbery in Olney Road, Lavendon near Milton Keynes.

    Yesterday (17/10) at around 9.45pm there was a road traffic collision on Olney Road involving a white Ford Transit.

    One of the victims, a woman in her forties, heard the collision and went to check if those involved needed any assistance. The three occupants of the van then assaulted the woman and tried to steal her car.

    The offenders did not manage to take the victims keys so walked further along the road and flagged down another vehicle. When the vehicle stopped the three offenders proceeded to assault the three occupants of this vehicle, a woman and a man in their teens and a man in his twenties.

    They managed to steal the vehicle, a silver Peugeot, and made off along Lavendon Road in the direction of Olney.

    All the victims suffered bruising and facial injuries, and all the victims in the vehicle received treatment at Milton Keynes University Hospital and have since been discharged.

    The stolen vehicle was later found burnt out in Bedfordshire.

    The first offender is a white man in his late thirties, around 6ft tall of big build with ginger stubble on his face. He was wearing a black hooded jacket which seemed to be a thin waterproof.

    The second offender is a white man in his early to mid-thirties, around 5ft 11ins tall of average build.

    The third offender is a white man in his mid-thirties, around 6ft of average build and was wearing all black clothing.

    Investigating officer Detective Inspector Thomas Belcher of Milton Keynes Investigation Hub, said: “This was a very distressing incident for the victims involved.

    “There is likely to have been a number of people who witnessed what happened and I am appealing to anyone who has information about this incident to get in touch.
