Hersham man's car stolen after armed gang steals keys

An armed gang stole a car from outside its owner's home after forcing their way in and stealing the keys.

Four men got into the house, in Molesey Road, Hersham, after what police say was a brief struggle with the owner.

They stole his wallet and keys to his Range Rover before driving off with the car, which police have not yet found.

They say at least two of the gang involved, in what they believe was a planned attack, are thought to have been carrying knives.

Their victim suffered minor back injuries but did not need hospital treatment.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the theft, which happened on Monday at about 23:00 GMT.
