Tatsfield robbery bid: two women arrested

Two women have been arrested by police investigating an attempted robbery in Surrey in which two business owners were targeted in their car.

The man and woman, in their 50s, were driving along Clarks Lane, Tatsfield on 16 August when their car was hit with a metal pipe then rammed.

The women, aged 26 and 28, from South Croydon, were arrested on Friday.

They are being questioned at Reigate police station on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery.

Rammed twice

The attack on the business owners, who were from the local area, happened as their car turned into Approach Road.

A silver Peugeot 307 overtook them and blocked the road before two men got out and hit the bonnet with a metal pipe.

The victims reversed into Clarks Lane where their car was rammed twice.

The second collision caused significant damage to the attackers' car, allowing the victims to get away uninjured but police said they were very shaken by the ordeal.
