Parcel van hijacked

Postby bramble43 » Saturday 4 November 2017, 00:27

Carjackers have targeted a delivery van full of parcels in Solihull.

An employee was on his rounds in Dorridge last Wednesday when the attackers struck.

The raiders made off with his van filled with goods after two men surprised the driver in Dorridge Road.

One grabbed the parcel the victim was about to deliver along with the keys to his white Vauxhall van.

A second man then jumped into the passenger side and the pair drove off at speed towards the centre of Dorridge.

West Midlands Police say they were called by local residents at 4.30pm following the theft.

A spokesperson said: “The vehicle was later involved in a collision on Kenilworth Road at the junction of Temple Balsall.

“The offenders had jumped a traffic light and then made off into a forest.

“The vehicle has been recovered.”

Officers believe a second vehicle was involved in the carjacking.

“It’s possible that when the vehicle was taken, there was a silver Volvo seen in the area” the spokesperson added.

“It was also seen to follow the van when it was in a collision in Kenilworth Road.”

One of the men is described as in his early 20s, white, clean-shaven and wearing a black top and a woolly hat.

There is no description for the second man.


The affluent borough has seen a rise in carjackings in recent months with a number of expensive vehicles targeted.

In separate incident in July, a mum and her baby were taken on a terror ride by carjackers who stole her Audi from Lode Lane in Solihull.

The gang had deliberately caused a crash to get the victim out of the driving seat.

They then roared off with the vehicle with mum and child inside.

The victim was only able to flee with her child when the criminals pulled into a side road.
