Carjack gang threaten man with knife in Ampthill

A gang of thugs threatened a man at knifepoint before stealing his car in Ampthill.

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



One of the gang 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.

DC Guy Steel-Jessop 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.”
