A MAN was threatened at knifepoint while sat in his car by two men who tried to get him to leave his vehicle.

The victim, a 30-year-old man, was in his car, a silver BMW M5, which was parked in front of Barclays Bank in New Road between 1pm and 1.40pm on December 22.

Two men approached the victim’s vehicle, and knocked on the window.

They then threatened the man in the car with a knife, before asking him to get out of the vehicle.

He refused to leave the car, after which the other two men left the scene on foot in the direction of Tesco.

The punishments are not a deterrent. Even if they get prison, they have lots of mates in there so it's a little like home from home.
The prison system needs overhauling and it needs to be made more unbearable.
These people do not work, they pull little scams daily to bolster their benefits income and getting locked up is simply a hazard of their chosen career path.
Prison Governors let them get away with a lot because it makes for an easy life, many, many things that happen inside a prison are not reported to the outside world because it will draw attention to the prison and ruffle feathers..... Until all that is looked into, nothing will improve.

‘The victim, a 30-year-old man, was in his car, a silver BMW M5, which was parked in front of Barclays Bank in New Road …’

I wonder if this refers to: New Road, High Wycombe, Bucks, HP12, or to New Road, Bolter End, Bucks, HP14, or to New Road, High Wycombe, Bucks, HP10.

(I assume it is not a reference to New Road, Princes Risborough, HP27.)
