Popular vet 'recovering well' after car-jacking ordeal

Terry Croud robbed of blue Audi in attack outside home in Birchlands Avenue, Wilsden


A POPULAR vet is said to be “recovering well” after being subjected to a violent car-jacking outside his Bradford home.

Terry Croud, who works for the Gatehouse Veterinary Group, was attacked by a gang of four men who robbed him of his blue 2015-reg Audi RS6 V8 in Birchlands Avenue, Wilsden, on Friday night.

Hundreds of well-wishers took to social media to offer their best wishes to Mr Croud, who was described as a “special person” and a “super-kind” vet, who is known to sing to the animals he cares for.


People also contacted the Telegraph & Argus directly to pass on their regards, with one calling Mr Croud “the best vet in Bradford”.

Tonight, Mr Croud’s wife, Samantha, told the T&A: “Terry would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and best wishes, it’s meant a lot to him. He is feeling fine and recovering well.”

In messages on its Facebook page, Gatehouse said Mr Croud, who is in his 50s, was stable in hospital before receiving eight stitches to his head wound. Late on Saturday, a message stated that he was a “bit sore”, but out of hospital.

Mr Croud was hit over the head with a hammer during the attack, which took place at around 8.15pm.

Police said he had just parked up his vehicle when he was confronted by a group of men who made demands for his keys.

They are understood to have driven to the address in another vehicle, said to have been a Mini.
