The victim, a man in his 50s, had just parked up his blue Audi RS6 car in Birchlands Avenue in Wilsden on the evening of Friday November 17 when he was confronted by four males demanding his keys.

He was struck from behind during the incident and is receiving hospital treatment for non-life threatening head injuries.

This appears to have been a group looking for a high-value car to steal, who have then used force to get what they want.

“We will not tolerate this kind of wanton violence in our communities and are making significant enquiries to identify those involved.

“We have already spoken to a number of witnesses and from our initial enquiries believe that the victim’s Audi RS6 was driven off in convoy with another vehicle.

“We would urge anyone who has seen these vehicles after this offence to please get in contact.

– Detective Inspector Ryan Bragg, of Bradford District CID
