Dorset PolicePolice officers investigating an attempted robbery in Gillingham are appealing for witnesses or anyone with relevant footage to come forward.

At around 2.30am on Tuesday 11 April 2023 a man and woman aged in their 60s were driving in Rolls Bridge Way with items of jewellery they were due to sell at an antiques fair in their car.

A black SUV approached them from behind and pulled up alongside their vehicle. The victims heard a banging on their windows and a voice telling them to get out of the car.

As they entered Cemetery Road the SUV pulled up in front of the victims’ vehicle, five men in dark-clothing and balaclavas got out and they approached the car.

A rear window was smashed and the SUV then reversed into the victims’ car before they were able to drive away from the scene.

Detective Constable Liam Moss, of Dorset County CID, said: ‘This was understandably a very distressing incident for the victims, and we have launched a full investigation to identify those responsible.

‘I would urge any witnesses to please contact us, and I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have captured any relevant footage on dashcam, home CCTV or doorbell cameras.’

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 52230055111. Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111.
