A man was punched and pulled out of his car by two men who drove off in the vehicle in an ambush outside a fish and chip shop in north Derbyshire.

The 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 the car he was approached by two men who gestured that they wanted to speak to him.

As he wound down the window, 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 DC Claire Burrows at Derbyshire Police on 101.
