The owner took chase, but unfortunately the car was driven off along Wallingford Road in the direction of Wallingford.

Police described the offenders as two men, dressed in black clothing, with black face coverings. One is described as slim build and the other of a heavier build.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Dan Tibble, based at Abingdon police station, said: “I am appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident or who has any information to please come forward.

“The car has not been located, therefore I am also appealing for anyone who may have seen a grey Audi RS4 with a registration plate beginning ‘LH14’ to get in touch.

“I also believe that the offenders were using a white VW Golf GTD.
