Remorseless duo jailed for terrifying 'steal to order' car-jacking on retired woman

A WEAPON was held “dagger-style” against the chest of a retired woman as she fell victim to a terrifying “steal to order’ car-jacking on the driveway of her home, a court heard.

As he jailed two Bradford men over the “chilling” incident in Skipton, a judge expressed his growing concern over the use of hire cars in serious crime.

Adam Takolia, 20, and Junaid Khan, 21, followed the high-performance Seat Leon Cupra until it pulled up outside a house on Skipton.

They then confronted the lone occupant, a “vulnerable” woman, on her driveway. The pair are understood to have been wearing balaclavas during the early evening attack in June.


Bradford Crown Court heard that a weapon, possibly a screwdriver, was held “dagger-style” towards the victim’s chest. The stolen car and a hired vehicle, another Seat Leon which the criminals had been using, were driven off. Parts from the stolen Cupra were later found in Bradford.

Khan, of Folkestone Street, Bradford Moor, and Takolia, Farleton Drive, Fagley, were both found guilty of robbery following a trial and were sentenced to five and six years in custody respectively.

Recorder of Bradford Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC described the robbery as a planned, targeted offence involving “stealing to order.”

The complainant had been driving her son’s vehicle at the time and Judge Durham Hall said it would have looked like an attractive, sporty car worth many thousands of pounds.
