A WOMAN has been left ‘shaken’ after a carjacking by three masked men in Earlsdon – which has left a disabled child without transport.

A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: “Police are investigating reports of a carjacking in Earlsdon Avenue South, Coventry, shortly before 4pm on Saturday, April 13.

“A woman in a white Seat Leon was approached by three masked men who demanded the keys to her car.

“She handed over her keys before they fled in her car.

Andy Wailes, brother of victim Sarah Wailes, said on Facebook: “For info and in the hope that they see this, the car is needed for my nephew who has Down’s Syndrome and can’t walk far – so I hope you are pleased with yourselves!
