| July 24, 2018

A woman was robbed in Aylesbury by offenders on a moped.

The robbery occurred at approximately 1.45am on Thursday 19th July 2018. The woman had stopped in her car at traffic lights at the junction of Buckingham Road, Elmhurst Road and Weedon Road in Aylesbury.

While waiting at the traffic lights a moped ridden by two people stopped behind her. The passenger got off the moped, opened the driver side door of the woman’s car and demanded that she got out of the car and give him the keys. He then leaned into the car and grabbed the car keys from the ignition.

The robber then got back on the moped and rode away, turned right in to Elmhurst Road. They rode along Bierton Road in to Cambridge Street and travelled along Upper Hundreds Way.

During the incident the victim’s car keys were stolen.
