Buckingham Driver Followed Into Milton Keynes
An 18 year-old driver heading into Milton Keynes says she was followed by a van driver - who tried to get her into his van.
Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after the 18 year-old was driving her car along the A421 from Buckingham heading in the direction of Milton Keynes at about 10.30pm yesterday (10/2).
She noticed a white van join the A421 from Warren Road which then began to tailgate the victim’s vehicle.
The driver of the van then started to flash his headlights. The victim stopped her car in a lay-by just beyond the Windmill Hill Roundabout and prior to the BP Garage on the A421 Standing Way.
Both drivers exited their vehicles before the offender started to shout at the victim and told her to get in his van.
The victim then returned to her car and drove to V6 Grafton Street. It is believed that the offender drove his vehicle to the A142 in the direction of Buckingham.
The offender is very tall and was wearing dark clothing with a hood pulled over his head, and it's believed he had a foreign accent.
The van is white, and was dirty at the time of the incident.
PC Nazia Hussain at Milton Keynes police station, said:
"This was a frightening experience for the victim, who has been left shaken by the incident. I am determined to bring the perpetrator to justice, but I will need the public’s help.
I would urge anyone who saw either vehicle yesterday evening travelling along the A421 or parked in the lay-by just beyond the Windmill Hill Roundabout and prior to the BP Garage, to contact police immediately. You may have vital information, no matter how insignificant you think it might be, that can aid our investigation.
The easiest way to contact us is to visit your nearest police station or call 101."
