Motorist's car stolen in Epsom knife-point robbery

A motorist has been subjected to a "terrifying" knife-point car-jacking after stopping for a couple flashing their car lights at him in Surrey.

It happened in Ruxley Lane, near Ruxley Church in Epsom, on Saturday afternoon.

The man, in his 30s, was being followed by a dark-coloured Ford Focus, whose driver indicated for him to pull over.

The male passenger then got out and threatened him with a knife, demanding his watch, money and car keys before fleeing in his vehicle.

'Slang words'

The thief was described as Asian, with very short shaved hair, a gold tooth, tattooed arms and thin build.

He was wearing a white T-shirt and grey jogging bottoms and spoke with a London accent, using slang.

He fled the scene in the direction of Gatley Avenue following the robbery at about 16:30 BST.

The driver of the car was described as a black female aged in her late teens or early 20s, of slim build, with black hair.

She was wearing dark trousers and a thigh-length grey and black checked shirt.
