Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a man was injured and left in critical condition following a robbery in Romiley last night (8 January 2021).
Just after 9pm, officers were called to a report of a road traffic collision on the junction of Lyme Grove and Hazel Avenue in Romiley.
At this stage, it is believed a vehicle was taken from a man, a delivery driver, during a robbery which was then in collision with the victim shortly afterwards.
A man in his 50s was taken to hospital in critical condition where he remains.
Detectives are currently tracing a silver Mercedes which they believe was stolen from the scene and is currently outstanding.
Detective Inspector Charlotte Whalley, of GMP's Stockport district, said: "This was a shocking incident that has left a man currently fighting for his life in hospital and his family are understandably upset and our thoughts remain with them.
"An investigation is on-going and our officers are carrying out a number of lines of enquiry but would urge the public to come forward with anyone information that may be able to assist us.
