Carjack victim whose Mercedes was ‘nicked by a machete-wielding thug’ found the yob himself after police snubbed him

A CARJACK victim whose motor was nicked by a machete-wielding thug found the yob himself after cops gave up.

Sheikh Islam, 33, turned detective when police made no progress — even failing to respond to his 999 call.

He had advertised the five-year-old Mercedes E class on Gumtree for £12,500.

But a “buyer” threatened him with a 12in blade during a test drive before speeding off.

After the lack of police action restaurant boss Mr Islam posted a description of the robber on Facebook site Stolen Cars UK.

Within hours he was sent a photo of a 25-year-old man he recognised immediately. Others came forward with an address.

But when Mr Islam, of Dagenham, East London, phoned cops with his dossier they told him the case had been “closed”.

He said: “I’ve done the police’s job for them but despite being threatened with a machete, I don’t seem to be a priority. It’s bang out of order.”

The Met Police said it had since reopened the case.
