This is the shocking moment two car thieves stole a screaming couple’s white Audi from a driveway just seconds after parking.

Video footage from a Ring doorbell camera shows an Audi rolling into a driveway in Purley, Greater London at around 3.45pm on August 15.

A man can be seen getting out of the passenger side and making his way to the front of the house, while a female driver slides out the car.

Suddenly a man wearing a helmet and dressed in black creeps onto the driveway and rushes towards the woman, who instantly starts screaming.

The thief yanks the car keys out of her hands and gets into the Audi as a second biker rolls onto the driveway on a moped.

He moves backwards, and the biker slams the door shut. The man opens the passenger-side door two more times as the Audi is reversed out of the driveway. 

Frantically waving at a passerby for help, he then loses his grip of the handle before the Audi speeds off down the busy road.

The second car thief can be seen speedily following the Audi as the man walks back to the house and consoles the screaming woman.

Police said two men, aged 18 and 19, were arrested on suspicion of stealing the Audi and the moped being ridden which was stolen two days earlier.

They were released on bail to return on a date in mid-September pending further enquiries, a spokesman for the force added. 

‘At 18:55hrs on Saturday, 15 August, police received a report of car theft in Purley,’ the Met said. ‘At around 15:40hrs that same day, the victim, a woman aged 60s, had driven her white coloured Audi SQ5, onto her driveway at Foresters Drive.

‘As she and her passenger got out of the car two males, one on a moped and one on foot, appeared on the driveway. The suspect who was on foot got into the car and both the Audi and the moped left the scene.

‘Police conducted a local search for the Audi and officers located it in a nearby street. Following forensic examination the car was returned to the victim.

‘On Thursday, 20 August police arrested two males, aged 18 and 19 on suspicion of one count of robbery in relation to the theft of the Audi, one count of robbery in relation to the moped that one suspect was riding which was stolen from an address in Epsom on Thursday, 13 August, and breach of a Criminal Behaviour Order.

‘Both males were released on bail to return on a date in mid-September pending further enquiries.’
