Police appeal for witnesses to attempt robbery of a taxi driver

Police appeal for witnesses to attempt robbery of a taxi driver

Police are appealing for witnesses following the attempted robbery of a taxi driver.

On Sunday 29 January 2012 a Cars R Us taxi driver, driving a liveried blue Ford Mondeo Estate, picked up two men from Wall Fields Road in Nantwich at 5.30am.

The two passengers became violent during the journey to Macclesfield, attempting to steal his money belt.

DC Ali Greenwood said: "The first attack occurred as they approached Arclid crossroads on the A50. One of the men in the back of the car tried to choke the driver. As a result the car stopped at the cross roads.

"The same passenger then attacked the driver again when stopped at Berwick Close, in Macclesfield by hitting him, climbing into the front seat and trying to bite at him on the face. He then tried to grab the driver′s money belt around his waist.

"We′re especially keen to speak to a female dog walker who walked past the car at the time of the second attack which would have been around 6am to 6.30am. She would have been alerted to the car as its horn was blaring as the driver fought off his attacker."

The second man stopped the other man fro his attack as they both got out of the vehicle. The driver was able to reverse at speed and escape. The driver was left relatively unscathed but shocked by his ordeal.

The main attacker is described as white, about 19 years old, slim and 5′ 9" to 5′ 11". He had dark blond to brown hair, was wearing a light grey hoodie with the hood up and dark bottoms.

The second man is described as white, approximately 30 years old, of slim build and about 5′ 7" to 5′ 9" tall. He had blondish cropped hair. He has a tattoo on his right arm or elbow area. He was wearing a white t-shirt and jeans.

Anyone with information should contact DC Ali Greenwood at Macclesfield CID on 101 quoting incident number 230 of 29.01.2012. Alternatively, information can be given anonymously on the Crimestoppers number 0800 555 111.
