Lorry driver robbed by hammer wielding gang
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
