Witness appeal following Ampthill knifepoint car robbery

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed of his car at knifepoint

A man arrived home in Coltsfoot Corner, Ampthill, at around 8pm on Saturday (9 February), and parked on the driveway, when he was approached by three men.

One of the men then threatened the man with a knife and demanded his car keys. The three men then got into the car, a silver Audi, and drove away.

All three offenders are described as wearing balaclavas and gloves.

Detective Constable Guy Steel-Jessop, investigating, said:

“This was a brazen robbery which left the victim shaken.

“If anyone saw anything, or anyone acting suspiciously that evening, please get in touch. We’d especially like to hear from any drivers with dashcams who were in the area at the time, and who may have seen a silver Audi driving away.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call 101, or report using the Bedfordshire Police online reporting tool, quoting reference 372 of 9 February.
