Appeal for witnesses after car robbery at Harpenden station – Hertfordshire

Officers investigating an incident during which two cars were stolen at knifepoint are appealing for witnesses and information.

At just after 6pm on Thursday 13 April, the victim was taking photos of a car that had just been sold to him at a car dealership in Harpenden station’s car park.

Two men, one of whom was wearing a balaclava, then entered the car park and one approached the victim from behind with a knife and demanded the vehicle’s keys before leading him to the dealership’s cabin.
