Re-appeal over head injuries crime victim

DETECTIVES are re-appealing for information over an incident which saw a man sustain head injuries when a thief stole his car.

The 54-year-old victim, who lives in Melbourne Close in Stotfold, had been pumping the tyres on his blue Peugeot 308 Sport outside his home.

He had returned to his house, leaving his keys in the ignition, and when he returned to the car someone was sitting in the driver’s seat.

Police say the thief “drove at the victim”, hitting him and causing head injuries and concussion.

The incident took place at about 1.30pm on December 17, and happened so quickly that the man was unable to give a description of the offender.
