Police hunt pair who approached woman in Colwick asking for mobile phone

Police are appealing for information after a Colwick woman was approached by two people in a van asking for her mobile phone.

Nicola-Jayne Morley, who lives on Valeside Gardens, said she was approached by the pair as she walked along Vale Road with her son yesterday afternoon (12).

She told Gedling Eye “We were approached by a female and male in a white estate car and they were asking to use my phone.

“They kept trying to get our attention but we just walked off and the next thing we heard was shouting.”

Nicola claims the man then threatened to run them over before driving his car closely towards them.

She said: “I’ve ran into the road to get away from them but my son was in shock and was nearly hit.”

Nicola has now reported the incident to Nottinghamshire Police

A spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Police said: “Police were called at around 4pm yesterday to reports of a woman who’d been approached by a man and a woman in a car who’d asked to use her mobile phone on Vale Road in Colwick.

“She declined and says the car drove very close to where she was standing before heading towards Vale Road.

“Officers would be keen to speak the pair who are described as white and in their early 30s. The woman had dark curly brown hair and possibly an Irish accent. She was wearing white jeans, a dark top and plimsoll type trainers. The man had short dark hair and was wearing a dark blue jumper. It’s believed they were driving a white estate type car, possibly a Vauxhall which was dirty.
