Lorry Driver Set On By Attackers

Two robbers tried to force a man to hand over the keys to his lorry in Coventry yesterday, and attacked him when he refused.

They approached him outside a firm called Dixons in the Couriers Close industrial estate between 9.30pm and 9.45pm.

The victim, aged 27, was returning a vehicle that he had been using that day when the attackers demanded that he give them the keys.

He refused, telling them that the trailer was empty. They then punched and kicked him in the head and body before escaping empty-handed.

The man suffered bruising, a swollen cheek and stiffness in his shoulders and neck.

Police appealed for help in catching the attackers, who are both white. One is in his 20s, 6ft, stocky, with very short hair and dark clothing. He had a distinctive two-inch scar on his left cheek.

His accomplice is 6ft, skinny and also had very short hair and dark clothing. Witnesses should call police on 024 7653 9175.
