A robber grabbed a woman by the neck and threatened to stab her before stealing her car in a terrifying robbery in Corby on Saturday morning (February 28).
The incident happened between 6.40am and 7am in the Morrisons car park.
The victim was in the car park when the man approached her and tried to grab her car keys before grabbing her by the neck and threatening to stab her unless she handed them over.
Following a struggle, the robber took the car keys – and the victim’s handbag – got into the car and drove away.
The victim suffered injuries to her hands which needed hospital treatment.
The car, a red Peugeot 107, was later found abandoned in Culross Walk.
The man was described as white, in his late 20s to early 30s, about 6ft, with a slim build.
He was wearing a dark zip-up top with the hood pulled right up over his head and down to the top of his nose. He was also wearing dark tracksuit bottoms and white trainers. He had dark stubble and spoke with a Scottish accent.
Witnesses, or anyone with information, are asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
