Pub cash stolen by crash thieves in Langley

A pub manager had a day's takings stolen by robbers who crashed into his car in Berkshire.

The victim and a colleague were in London Road, Langley, on Saturday when the convertible Vauxhall Astra was hit from behind by a grey Alfa Romeo.

Before the manager could get out, two masked men came up to the car and demanded the passenger's bag.

One of the men snatched the bag before they returned to the other vehicle and fled in the direction of Slough.

Surgical mask

Thames Valley Police said the men were later seen abandoning the Alfa Romeo in Park Lane, Upton, before driving away in a white Transit van.

The suspects are described as being in their 20s, of slim build and wearing jeans and grey jackets.

One wore a surgical mask to hide his face while the other is believed to have been wearing a black scarf.

Det Con Emma Mullenger appealed for witnesses and said: "Someone might remember details of the accident, which took place on a busy road in the middle of the day.

"Also because it so unusual we would want to speak to anyone who saw a man getting out of a car wearing a surgical mask around that area at the time of the crime."
