Carjackers try to steal mum’s car

A TERRIFIED mum has described the moment three men tried to hijack her car as she waited at traffic lights.

Care worker Safina Akhtar, 34, from Allerton, was driving home from work on Friday evening when she came to a stop on Barkerend Road, opposite Lidl.

The mum-of-three said a white Audi car with three men inside pulled up alongside her.

The driver was wearing a balaclava and started sounding his horn and shouting obscenities at the mum before getting out of his car.

"They came alongside me and wanted to have an argument for no reason," she said.

"I asked them what was wrong and when I said that they jumped out the car.

"My heart started pounding and I fled through the lights.

"I realised something was going to happen and I panicked.

"It looked like they were going to attack me.

"If I hadn't taken off they would have attacked me or taken my car."

Mrs Akhtar believes the men targeted her specifically because of her car, which has alloy wheels and a sat nav, and says she feels lucky to have escaped the terrifying situation.
