Late last night (Wednesday 13th December 2017) word reached me that a local lady and her daughter who were parked up in Coppice Lane, Brownhills, waiting for her son to finish work had a lucky escape when a man tried and failed to get into their car.
The incident occurred around 7pm.
The man was described as about 5ft tall with a bald head wearing all black clothing. He was carrying a laptop style bag which he seemed to be trying to get something out of.
Luckily the lady involved managed to drive off before the man could gain entry to the car.
Please, if you have any further information relating to this matter, or if you’ve witnessed something suspicious, please contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 (999 in an emergency, obviously) or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
