Taxi driver robbed at knifepoint
A TAXI driver in Iver has been robbed at knife point by two customers who also attempted to steal his car.
The pair got into the taxi in Langley Park Road, at the junction with Trenches Lane, at around 11.35pm on Tuesday, August 1. After a short distance they told the 41-year-old driver to pull over, before one of the men threatened him with a knife and demanded money.
They then ordered the driver to get out of his car and tried to steal it.
But having failed to do this they stole an “amount of cash” from the victim, Thames Valley Police say, and walked off in the direction of Langley.
The driver was not injured in this incident.
Police have now launched an appeal for information following the terrifying ordeal.
The first thief is an Asian man, aged between 25 and 35, about 5ft 7ins tall with a shaved head and a beard. He is of a short build and was wearing a dark brown hooded top, black trousers and black trainers.
He had large dark eyes, a long face and spoke with a local accent.
The second is an Asian man, aged between 25 and 35 and about 5ft 5ins tall. He was wearing a light brown hooded top with the hood up.
Investigating officer, PC Melissa Todd, based at Amersham police station, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who has any details relating to this incident to get in touch. Two vehicles stopped to assist the victim, so I am particularly keen to speak to those people as they could have important information relating to this investigation. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101.”
