Inc 553 Tuesday 19 May
A 35 year old man was taken to the George Eliot Hospital with head injuries after he was attacked by masked thieves who stole his blue Audi S3 car.
The man had parked his car on Mill Lane, Bulkington at shortly before 10pm and got out of the vehicle.
He was approached by three males wearing balaclavas. One of them threatened to shoot him, although no weapon was seen.
He was then beaten about the head with what police believe was a crowbar, and fell to the floor where one of his attackers then kicked him.
The three males, two described as being white males and one of mixed race Asian appearance, and who were all dressed in black, stole the man's car and drove it away.
The car was found abandoned in Ragina drive in Coventry a short while later.
Police investigating the incident would like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious on Mill Lane, bulkington between 9.30 - 10pm on Tuesday evening (19 May), or anyone who saw the car and it's occupants, or anything else suspicious in Ragina drive, Coventry.
Anyone with information should contact DC Rob Fellowes at Nuneaton Police Station on 02475 641111 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111."
