Police have released images of five men they want to speak to after a woman had her car stolen at Daisy Nook Country Park.

The victim, a woman in her 30s, was driving along Stannybrook Road in her grey Audi Q3 at around 11am on Wednesday December 19th. Another car, believed to be a grey Fiat Bravo, drove into the back of her.

The car followed her into a car park at Daisy Nook but as she started to exchange details, the driver threatened her with a gun.

He then drove off in her Audi before a second man drove away in the Fiat. Thankfully, the woman wasn’t injured.

Since the incident, officers have carried out extensive enquiries in the local area and trawled through hours of CCTV footage. Now, they’ve released images of five men they want to speak to urgently.

Police Constable Toby Miskiewicz, from GMP’s Operation Gladiator, said: “We have a dedicated team of officers working to trace those responsible for this terrifying incident but we are still appealing for the public’s help. 

“Did anyone see the Audi or Fiat in the Oldham area following this incident? 

“While no one was injured, circumstances could have easily been very different and our thoughts remain with the woman as she continues to recover from her ordeal. 

“I would urge people to have a good look at these pictures and if you recognise any of these men, please get in touch with police at the earliest convenience.”
