0 0

This is the shocking moment an elderly woman was targeted by thugs as she withdrew cash from an ATM in north-east London.


The victim was targeted by two thieves in Chingford, who distracted her before taking her bank card.

In CCTV footage, one man can be seen sitting down on a bench next to the ATM.

The footage then jumps to the moment the woman attempts to take cash out.

Police are launching an appeal to trace the two men (Metropolitan Police)

Both men appear behind her before one pushes her out of the way and takes the card from the machine.

Two separate withdrawals of £250 were then made from the account, the Met Police said.

Detectives believe that the victim was targeted due to her age and are appealing for anyone who recognises the men or any witnesses to get in contact.

The first suspect is believed to be aged between 20 and 30 years and of large build.

He was with another man who acted as a lookout and who is believed to be between 17 to 25 years old and of slim build.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 and quote CAD4508/13OCT or tweet @MetCC. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously 0800 555 111.
