A man has been left with serious injuries after stopping two men from stealing his van in Banstead.

It happened between 8pm and 9pm on Saturday, 29 October outside an address in Nork Way, Banstead.

Two men were both physically assaulted by another two man when they went outside to investigate the van's alarm going off.

A man in his 20s was hospitalised and needed treatment for a fractured eye socket, a broken nose and injuries to the head and face.

The other man, in his 50s, is reported to have been kicked and punched but did not need hospital treatment.

A woman in her 40s was also grabbed by one of the men as she took the keys out of their car.

One man is described as white, in his late 30s to early 40s, between 5ft 8” - 5ft 9” tall, of a stocky build. He has short, fluffy, mousy coloured mid-brown hair and a large, round head.

He was wearing a jacket and dark coloured tracksuit bottoms and a baseball cap.

The second man is described as white, in his mid to late 30s, around 6ft tall and having a large build. He was wearing a dark blue zipped jacket, dark coloured tracksuit bottoms, a baseball cap and gloves.

The car the two men had been travelling in was a blue Audi A3, number plate LD02WGE, which had been purchased earlier the same day.

Investigating officer Detective Constable James Vernon, said: “This was an appalling incident which has left one man seriously injured in hospital and two further innocent people shocked and shaken. 

"I would urge anyone with any information to come forward and contact police – any details, however small they may seem, could help bring those responsible to justice.”
