New car-jack attempt at Cobbs corner

Post by ALIB » 10 Apr 2011 12:29

a man and woman of darki/eastern european complexion (possibly with accomplices) are attempting to flag down motorists at Cobbs corner.
This is a scam. I have informed the police, but in the meantime under no circumstances stop for people flagging you to the side of the road when driving.

this happened at approx 12.10 on this sunday afternoon.

Be very aware. I have this sinking feeling that a car-jack will be reported this afternoon
