Car dumped on busy road after being ‘attacked by gang of four’

A car was recovered from a busy Greater Manchester road after being ‘attacked’ and left abandoned in Oldham. Greater Manchester Police says a group of four males targeted the black Citroen C5 Aircross, before it was left dumped in the road.

Two images shared by the force show how the black Citroen C5 Aircross was left. The car’s rear windscreen and two windows on the passenger’s side were completely shattered.

The windscreen was also found with a large crack on the passenger’s side. GMP’s images show the car left abandoned on Huddersfield Road, near to the junction with Livesey Street.

GMP says the Citroen was a rental car. The vehicle was seized by police following the incident, which took place on Monday (March 11).

In a post shared late last night (Tuesday), a GMP Traffic spokesperson wrote on X (formerly Twitter): “Traffic PCSOs seized this rental car from a main road in Oldham yesterday, after the empty vehicle was seen being attacked by four males, before being abandoned.” GMP has been approached for an update.
