Appeal after mother and pregnant daughter robbed of car

DETECTIVES in Tameside are appealing for information after a mother and her pregnant daughter were robbed of their car in Denton.

CCTV has been released of the incident, which took place on Bond Street at 5.20pm on Tuesday, December 28.

In the footage, the victims – two women in their 50s and 30s – get out of their black Audi TTS Quattro and begin to walk away from it before two masked men approach and proceed to assault them.

During the incident, the pregnant woman was thrown to the ground and had the keys to the car taken from her by the offenders who then made off in the Audi onto Hyde Road towards Hyde.

Anyone with information about the incident or the identity of the offenders involved are also asked to report to investigators – as even the slightest information could be crucial.

Detective Sergeant Peter Goddard, of GMP Tameside’s Serious Acquisitive Crime Team, said: “We’re desperate to hear from anyone who may have information about this incident, which saw a pregnant woman shockingly thrown to the floor.

“It is clear that these offenders are cowardly and dangerous individuals who will try and prey on vulnerable people in the street regardless of their surroundings or the time of day and we are doing all we can to catch them.

“No arrests have yet been made but we are carrying out several lines of enquiry and hope that anyone who recognises these men – or who may have dash-cam footage of a vehicle matching the stolen Audi’s description – to get in touch with us on 0161 856 9372 quoting incident 2034 of 28/12/2021.

“Information can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
