A set of keys belonging to the victim’s vehicle – a grey BMW - were stolen and were then used to drive the vehicle away from the drive and in the direction of Kingston Road.

A short time later, after encountering a police patrol vehicle, two offenders decamped from the vehicle and fled in the direction of Bramford Lane.

Despite attempts to track the offenders officers were unsuccessful on this occasion.
