Car Jacking - Drivers Attacked with Guns and Knives

Post by JGD »

Worryingly two car jacking incidents so close together in last few days.

The first in Bromley involved thugs using guns whilst impersonating police officers.

The second in Sydenham attacking the driver with knives and inflicting multiple wounds whilst he was de-icing his car.

In both cases vehicles were driven off by the crooks.

Be alert to people approaching you.

It might be this - police appealing for information about an incident on 14th February on Lawrie Park Gardens

If you can't access the NextDoor post text is as follows:

"
On 14th February at approximately 06:20am a knife-point robbery occurred on Lawrie Park Gardens.

A black Landrover was stolen and believed to have driven towards Westwood Hill and onto Sydenham Park, SE26.

If you have any information that may be of use, especially dashcam footage, ring doorbells or CCTV then please call 101 quoting CAD119/14FEB20 or report to Crimestoppers anonymously.

Thank you for your help."

Reading the reports, it would seem that changing the heading to "guns or knives" might be more accurate? Bad enough, either way.
