Police search for women after 91-year-old man had money stolen in west London
Detectives released a photo of two women they want to talk to after the £ 300 theft to a 91-year-old woman who had just used an ATM in west London.
The retiree noticed the couple on a bus returning home from their shopping trip and then again in the elevator in the Uxbridge assisted living block where she lives.
After getting out of the elevator and entering her home, she checked her bag and realized that the money was missing and alerted the police.
She had collected the money at 1 p.m. on Long Lane, Hillington, before taking the U bus from Hillingdon Circus to Brunel University.
While on the bus, she noticed that the two women, who can be seen in the pictures, were released and again in the elevator. She told investigators she had never seen them in her OR before.
Chief Detective Inspector Michael Dougall, Road and Transport Police Command, said: “The elderly victim of this theft was understandably shaken by this experience.
“If there is any suggestion that an elderly victim has been specifically targeted after withdrawing money from our community, we will do our best to identify the person (s) responsible.
“We are very keen to speak to the women in these photos and urge the public to come forward if they can help us identify them.”
Anyone who has witnessed the incident or has information on the identity of the two women should call 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 5892 / 13JUL. Information may also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
