Man threatened with machete in 'scary' car theft

A man was threatened with a machete in what police have described as an "incredibly scary incident".

Three men entered a property on Uxbridge Road in Slough, Berkshire, at about 03:30 BST on Thursday.

One of them used the weapon to demand that the victim hand over his car keys and valuables, according to Thames Valley Police (TVP).

The offenders then stole a black BMW M4 and left, the force said.

A silver Ford Focus was damaged in the incident but police said the victim, who was aged in his thirties, was unhurt.

One male offender has been described as being of a mixed-heritage background, between the age of 20 and 30, 6ft 2in (1.88m) tall, and of slim build.

A black man, aged about 25 and 6ft 2in (1.88m) tall and a shorter "chubby" Asian man, aged about 26, were also involved, according to TVP.

Officers are appealing for witnesses.
