MAN TRIED TO STEAL CAR WITH COUPLE STILL INSIDE

A MAN who made an alleged attempt to steal a car with a baby girl and her grandmother still inside is being hunted by police.

An e-fit image of the man has been issued following the incident in Kirk Sandall last month.

The pair were sitting in the back seat of a silver Ford Focus while the driver, the woman's husband, visited a customer on Lancaster Avenue.

A man got into the driver's seat, started the engine and began driving down the street.

When the woman shouted for him to stop, the man stopped the car and ran off up Lancaster Avenue, taking the car keys with him.

He is described as being in his late 40s and unshaven with short dark hair. He was slim and wearing a navy blue fleece and jeans.

Anyone with information should call Pc Michael Dewsnap at Rossington Police Station on (01302) 385500.
