A car owner was hit by their own vehicle while trying to stop two robbers taking it.

The thugs struck in Pearl Gardens, Cippenham between noon and 12.30pm on Saturday. They stole the silver Mercedes from outside a property and one produced a large knife when the car's owner tried to stop them, while the other reversed the car knocking the victim over

The first offender is described as a slim, white man in his late twenties or thirties, wearing a grey hoodie pulled over his head and a mustard coloured body warmer. He had a light amount of ginger facial hair.

The second offender is described as a white man wearing a light blue hooded top.

Designated investigator Alexandra Bishop, based at Slough police station, said: "I am appealing to anybody who was in the area at the time of the offence who believes that they may have any information to contact the 24-hour non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 43190300638, or to make a report online.

"I am also appealing to anyone who may have seen a silver Mercedes with the partial registration WT15 *** and a grey Audi with the partial registration PF04 *** driving erratically in the area. This would have been a busy time of day for motorists and I urge anyone who was driving in the area to check their dash-cam footage from around this time.
