Police appeal after woman’s car stolen at gunpoint in Oldham

POLICE are appealing for information after a woman had her car stolen at gunpoint following a collision in Oldham.

The victim, a woman in her 30s, was driving along Stannybrook Road in her grey Audi Q3 when a car, believed to be a grey Fiat Bravo drove into the back of her at around 11am on December 19, 2018.

The car followed her into a car park at Daisynook Country Park and she began exchanging details with its driver when he produced a firearm and threatened her.

The man then drove off in her car before a second man drove away in the Fiat.

The woman was uninjured.

One suspect, the one with the gun, is described as Asian, with darker-coloured skin, aged in his early 20s, of slim build and about 5ft 8ins tall.

He had short back and sides with curly or textured dark hair on top. He is described as having a pointy chin and was clean shaven, wearing a black jacket.

The second man is described as white with dark or black, short, straight hair. His skin was very pale and he is further described as having a tired-looking appearance with bags under eyes.

Detective Constable Katy Simpson from Operation Gladiator, GMP’s Oldham Division said: “The perpetrators of this robbery have subjected the woman to a terrifying ordeal.

“We are determined to trace those responsible for this crime and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

“Did you see the Fiat or Audi in the area during the time of the incident?

“We believe the Audi has been used in the Oldham area subsequent to its theft. Have you seen anyone acting suspiciously while driving a car like this?

“Anyone who can help with our enquiries should contact police immediately.”
