Maldon: Couple trick and rob teenage Good Samaritan
Residents are in shock after a Good Samaritan was tricked into stopping to help a stranded driver and robbed.
The 19-year-old victim from the Tolleshunt Major area was flagged down by a woman as he was driving along Scraley Road, Heybridge.
She was standing next to a small, dark-coloured car with its hazard lights on, as if she had broken down.
As the young man went to help, a man who had been crouching at the front of the woman’s car out of the victim’s sight, appeared and punched him in the face.
The teenager had £260 stolen from him and suffered swelling to his eye in the incident at 1am last Wednesday.
