Officers are appealing for information after an attempted robbery of a car in the Darfield area of Barnsley on Friday 3 May. 

At 1.30pm that day, the 73-year-old victim left an address and reversed his car off the drive way on to Barnsley Road. It’s then reported that a man approached the driver’s door and made threats, demanding that the elderly man got out of his car so he could take it. 

The man, assisted by two passers-by, bravely refused.

Officers are now looking to speak to this man, captured on dash-cam footage, who they believe can help with their enquiries. Do you recognise him? Did you see him in the area on 3 May?

If you can help, please call 101 quoting incident number 632 of the 3 May. Alternatively, you can report information anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
