A DRIVER was robbed at gun-point while sitting in his Mercedes in Greenford.

The victim a 61-year-old travel agent from Isleworth was sitting in his stationary black A-class Mercedes Benz on the Greenford Road near Tesco.

He was waiting for traffic lights to turn green when the thief approached his near-side car window.

The man tapped on the car's window and signalled with two fingers that he wanted a cigarette.

The victim opened the car window before the robber put his upper body completely into the car and pulled out a silver pistol from his right side.

A spokesman for Ealing Borough Police said: "He pointed his gun at the victim and spoke to him in Hindi saying, give me your money, give me everything'."

At this point another robber came through the window and took the Asian driver's Nokia mobile phone while the other suspect grabbed and pulled off the victim's £1,000 Rado watch from his left wrist and a £450 gold wrist chain.

The robbers also stole £180 cash from the victim and a black leather pouch containing tobacco before running away towards the traffic lights.

The gun-holding suspect is Asian, around 24 and was wearing a light-blue baseball cap, a blue denim jacket, and a white shirt with blue stripes.

He spoke in an English accent and has an average build.

The other man was Asian, aged between 20 and 25 as was a third suspect who was at the scene.
