Detectives investigating a series of car-jackings across Birmingham have arrested three teenagers.

The boys – two aged 15 and one aged 16, all from Hall Green – were arrested by officers on Thursday (23/12) in connection with vehicle robberies in the Moseley area.

It’s suspected the trio were involved in robberies on parkland in Moseley and in Acocks Green. They are currently in police custody for questioning.

Meanwhile, officers are searching for another group of men who attacked a 41-year-old man on his own driveway last Thursday (15/12) before stealing his car.

The man had parked outside his home in Livingstone Road when he was approached by one of the suspects who asked him if he was okay, then demanded his car keys.

He tried to run to the front door but was dragged to the ground and assaulted by four men until he released the keys.

The thieves drove off in the man’s blue Audi SQ5, which has now been recovered and retained for forensic examination.

Fortunately the man only suffered minor injuries.


Detectives believe the offenders were driven to Livingstone Road in a light blue 05-plate Ford Focus which drove off in the direction of Alcester Road South while the stolen vehicle was driven towards Brandwood Road.

Good quality footage of the incident has been released by detectives in a bid to identify those involved.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the High Harm and Vulnerability team at Bournville Lane Police Station on 101 or by emailing Sergeant Toni Holl on
