A man returning late home from work was set upon in the Netley Road car park by a gang of armed men. The incident occurred on 1st June at 3.15 am. The victim, a 38 year old Asian male had just got out of his car when he was met by three men who were swearing at him.

Two of them brandished knives at him and took his car keys. One of the group pushed him out of the way and got into the car and drove away towards Ealing Road. The other two started chasing the victim. They then made off down Distellery Walk and Pottery Road.

The victim believes his assailants were Somailian. The first is described as a black male 5ft 8" tall aged around 20 with dark clothing and short dark hair. The second and third suspects
are of a similar description though one was wearing a mask.

The car was a silver Vauxhall Astra estate. It was later found abandoned but intact in the
Wembley area.

If you have information which you believe may assist the police in their investigations you are
asked to call TDC Neil Fotheringham on 020 8247 4940.
