Masked men rob driver of his BMW

A man has been left shaken after masked thieves stole his black BMW from outside his home.

The 57-year-old victim, who does not want to be named, said three men dressed in dark clothes and balaclavas demanded his car keys when he left the vehicle to open the garage in Park Lane, Whitefield, Manchester. The assailants then drove off at high speed.

"Only one came first and shouted: ‘Give me your keys'. Suddenly, two others appeared, so I just threw them the keys," said the victim. "I didn't have much choice with three yobbos in a dark alleyway."

Police have not found the BMW and no arrests have been made.

The robbery is one of a spate of thefts occurring in Jewish areas in north Manchester.
