A CAR stolen in a violent robbery was found partially burnt out in Northaw.
A 22-year-old man was punched in the face and had his car stolen in the attack, in the early hours of Tuesday last week.
The victim parked his car outside the Tesco Express in High Street, Waltham Cross, at 12.10am to use the cashpoint.
While at the ATM, he was attacked by the hooded thug, who punched him in the face and took his car keys.
The robber then fled in the victim’s car, a silver Audi A3 convertible, in the direction of Monarch’s Way. The car was found abandoned, having been set alight, in bushes along Carbone Hill, Northaw, later in the morning.
