A 37-year-old man parked his grey Volkswagen Golf in York Street, Hasland, and went to a nearby takeaway at around 10.30pm on Friday, April 22.

When he returned to his car, he was approached by two men who gestured that they wanted to speak to him.

As he wound the window down, one of the men punched him in the face and pulled him out of the car.

The two men got into the car and sped off along York Street.

One man wore a dark hooded top and blue jeans while the other wore a white baseball cap.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
