Main article content
Police investigating a robbery in the Belgrave area of Leicester last Monday (7 November) are appealing for witnesses and dash cam footage.
Around 6.30pm two men stole a number of pairs of designer trainers from an address in Tiverton Avenue.
They then left the scene at speed in what is believed to be a dark coloured Volkswagen Polo with a 2012 registration plate.
It is reported the vehicle turned left onto Gipsy Lane and headed towards Catherine Street and in its haste to escape collided with two vehicles, causing minor damage to both. It was also seen swerving in and out of traffic.
Officers are looking to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and saw the vehicle or may have captured it on their dash cam.
PC Elliot Brown, investigating officer, said: “This incident took place last Monday night at a time when many vehicles will have been travelling along Gipsy Lane.
“If anyone thinks they saw a dark coloured car being driven in a dangerous manner or has footage of the car on their dash cam, please make contact.”
Anyone with information can report online or call 101, quoting crime reference number 22*652307.
