CCTV appeal for two Ilford thieves who stole from elderly woman

Detectives want to identify the two women after an elderly woman had cash stolen while shopping

Police have released a CCTV appeal for two women after they stole from an elderly woman in a mobility scooter.

The 79-year-old was targeted while she was in a shop in High Road, Ilford on Sunday, 3 March.

She was approached by two women, who were both pretending to look at items on an opposite shelf.

One woman proceeded to unzip the victim’s shoulder bag. She then attempted to remove her purse, before being disturbed.

She came back again and successfully removed the purse and both suspects walked away.

£50 cash and bank cards were taken.

PC Terry Hughes, based in Ilford, said: “I would urge anyone who recognises these women to contact us so that we can prevent them from targeting other vulnerable members of our community.”

There have been no arrests although enquiries are ongoing.

Anyone with information about the identity of the two suspects should call PC Terry Hughes on 101 quoting reference 4406899/19.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
