POLICE are appealing for information after a thief took a car from a woman at a supermarket in Selston.

The incident happened on 29th November at the Co-op car park at around 7.45pm.

The woman’s daughter Dee Peatman says that her mum has been left ‘nervous and shaken’ by the incident.

She said that a youth had approached her 48-year-old mum, who has asked not to be named, and took the keys to her MG TF from her.

“He more or less forced her out of the car,” she said.

“A carrier bag and purse were in the car and they drove off. My mum ran to the nearest house and phoned the police.”

The car was later found abandoned in the Prince’s Street area of Eastwood - but Dee says her mum no longer wants to drive it.

“It’s made her nervous going out at night. She’s still quite shaken two weeks later.

“The car was abandoned on a road and although it wasn’t in a bad condition the interior wasn’t very good. But my mum doesn’t want the car back now.”

The thief is described as being around 22-years-old and white, tall and skinny. He wore a hoodie with the hood pulled up.

Yesterday, a spokeswoman from Nottinghamshire Police said that no arrests had been made and enquiries were still ongoing.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call the police on 101 or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
