Parcel delivery man from Brigg robbed in Scotter
A 25-year-old Brigg man was robbed while delivering parcels in Scotter yesterday (Tuesday, Sept 4).
The robbery took place about 9.35am when the victim was driving a white Ford Transit van (registration number YP61OCN) to deliver parcels.
The van is marked with the writing Lincs Van Hire on the back, front and sides and was parked on Mill Crescent, Scotter, when the robbery took place.
A spokesman for Lincolnshire Police said: "Whilst out, of the van the driver was approached and pushed to the ground. The assailant then took the van keys and drove away in the van. The van driver was not injured. The direction of travel once out of Mill Crescent is unknown. The exact contents of the van are not known at this stage. Generally the contents will have been items of furniture."
The offender may have emerged from a silver estate car but this has yet to be confirmed.
He is described as of skinny build, 5'8" to 5'9" tall.
He wore a black hooded top with the hood up and dark blue tracksuit bottoms.
Anyone who may have witnessed any part of this offence, or who may have seen the van or the silver estate car before or after the offence or has any information about the current whereabouts of the van and its contents, is asked to contract Detective Constable Kev Kay of Gainsborough CID.
