POLICE are appealing for witnesses to an attempted robbery near Shrewley.
A man was driving a white van between Shrewley and the Five Ways Roundabout around 2.30pm on Thursday January 26 when a dark green flat-bed van loaded with scrap overtook him.
The flat-bed van stopped in front of the white van and a man got out of the passenger side. He is believed to have head butted the victim and demanded his van keys.
The two engaged in a scuffle on the roadside before the offender made off empty-handed in his flat-bed van towards Honiley.
The attacker is described as around 5ft 9in, of medium build, in his 30s and with an Irish accent. It is believed he was wearing a chequered shirt at the time.
The victim – a man in his 40s – suffered facial injuries and a cut to his hand.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or was in the area at the time is urged to call police on 101.
