Taxi driver robbed at knife­point

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.”
