Lorry driver robbed by ham­mer wield­ing gang

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A MASKED gang at­tacked a sleep­ing lorry driver with a ham­mer and robbed him in a Den­ham lay-by.

The 56-year-old man was in his Volvo lorry, parked along the A412 Den­ham Road, when four men wear­ing gloves and bal­a­clavas smashed a win­dow, hit him and took his wal­let and mo­bile phone shortly be­fore mid­night. Po­lice are now hunt­ing for the men in­volved fol­low­ing the at­tack on May 5.

He was taken to Hilling­don Hospi­tal where he was as­sessed for his in­juries and has since been dis­charged.

PC Iain Tor­bet, of­fi­cer in the case from Taplow Lo­cal CID, said: “I am ap­peal­ing for any­one who may have seen the lorry parked in the lo­ca­tion de­scribed prior to the incident. More im­por­tantly, I would like to hear from any­one who saw four males act­ing sus­pi­ciously or en­ter­ing the lorry.

“I would like to re­as­sure lo­cal res­i­dents that an incident of this na­ture is ex­tremely rare and that a thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on-go­ing to re­spon­si­ble.

“Thank­fully, the vic­tim did not suf­fer se­ri­ous in­juries given the na­ture of the incident.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the robbery is be­ing urged to con­tact PC Tor­bet via 101. Al­ter­na­tively call Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111. catch those
