Grimsby: Three men wanted

23 Apr 2018

A 73-year-old man has allegedly been assaulted and had his car stolen by three men in Grimsby.

The victim was parked outside a takeaway on Sutcliffe Avenue around 7pm on 21 April 2018 when three men approached his vehicle.

One got in the passenger side while another opened the driver’s door. The man assaulted the victim before pulling him out of the car then jumping in and driving off. The third suspect ran off.

The victim sustained injuries to his face.

Two suspects are white and in their 20s. One was around 5 feet 8 and wearing a distinctive white tracksuit. The other was short and wearing black tracksuit bottoms and a white tracksuit top. There is no description of the third man.

The stolen car is a silver Mitsubishi Colt with registration number N227 CMJ which we still want to find.

Detective Inspector James Fairgreaves from Grimsby CID said: “This is a wholly unacceptable crime committed against an elderly man who was attacked and then had his car stolen.

“I want to stress that this is an isolated and opportunist crime which thankfully doesn’t happen often. We want to find these suspects and return the car to its owner. Please contact us quoting log 536 of 21 April.”
