Detectives are appealing for information after a man was the victim of an attempted robbery on an industrial estate in Morley.

The 59-year-old victim was driving out of the industrial estate off Bruntcliffe Lane at around 2.55pm on Sunday December 13, when a white Peugeot Bipper van pulled out in front blocking the road.

Two men got out of the vehicle and approached the victim’s car. The victim attempted to drive away at which point the driver of the van rammed his vehicle and the two men attempted to smash his car windows. The victim managed to drive away.

Detective Constable Craig Rika, of Leeds District CID, said: “Thankfully the victim wasn’t physically harmed during this incident but it was understandably a frightening experience for him. A number of enquiries are ongoing and as part of this we are seeking the public’s help in providing any information which could help identify the people involved or the vehicle they were using.

“The van involved will have had damage to the front as a result of the collision and we are keen to hear from anyone who believes they have seen it in the vicinity of this offence.

“Anyone who was in the area and saw anything that may relate or with any other information about this offence is urged to call Leeds District CID via 101 or independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
