Police want to speak to two people after a 90-year-old woman’s handbag was stolen and cash card used.
On November 24 last year, the pensioner’s bag was stolen from her home in Stafford Avenue, Hornchurch.
The bag contained the pensioner’s card which was used a few days later to withdraw a large amount of the victim’s money from a cash machine in Gidea Park.
The man police want to speak to in connection with taking the handbag is aged between 50 to 55-years-old, and the woman believed to have used the card is around 25-years-old, with dark black hair with red streaks.
Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call Sukh Mahil at Romford CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
