Delivery Driver Attacked with Axe in West Midlands!

At Speed Couriers, we like to ensure all of our drivers are 100% safe when taking parcels and packages from A to B, but unlucky deliveryman in the West Midlands was recently attacked by three men and an axe during one of his routine deliveries!

As expected, the driver was delivering cash to Dudley’s High Street branch of Barclays bank when three robbers attempted to steal the cash he was transporting, using an axe to threaten the driver. Little did they know he was more than capable of defending himself and the cash box he was carrying; the deliveryman fought off all three assailants and left them to scarper empty-handed, before calling the police.

The security guard, who did not want to be identified, later said he was “simply doing his job.” The three duped robbers fled in a white transit van, which was later found abandoned near the crime scene.

The robbers have not yet been identified by West Midlands police; although we’re sure they’ll think twice before taking on any more deliverymen!

At Speed Couriers, our methods are sure to keep your transported goods are safe; from our secure and stable convoy of vehicles to the professional and careful attitude of our couriers, you can be sure your package is in safe hands!
