Men 'threatened by pistol' after collision in Wycombe
TWO occupants of a car were threatened by what they believed was a pistol after a collision in High Wycombe, police said today.
At about 9.40pm on Wednesday, officers were flagged down by two men in a Toyota Avensis on the mini-roundabout in Queen Alexandra Road.
The men said their vehicle was approached by a black Mercedes and a red Toyota Avensis outside Herbies Pizza in Desborough Road, and that both cars were in collision with the silver Toyota Avensis during the incident.
The victims managed to drive off, but the Mercedes pulled up alongside them in West End Street, at the junction with Suffield Road. One of the men in the Mercedes was seen holding what appeared to be a pistol and he then made threats towards the victims.
A police investigation has been launched and an imitation firearm has since been recovered.
Investigating officer Det Con Kate Burton, at High Wycombe CID, said: “There would have been people in the Desborough Road and West End Street areas around the time of this incident and I would appeal to these people to come forward and tell us what they saw.”
If you can help, please call Det Con Burton via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101. I
