This heartless thief caught on CCTV at Hatton Cross Bus Station is being hunted for nicking a woman's rucksack.
At approximately 7.00pm on Thursday, January 28 the suspect stole the red rucksack from a bus stop outside, when it was unattended for a short time.
He carried the rucksack into the bus station and walked through to another exit, making no attempt to hand the bag into staff.
It contained cash, a laptop and other personal items belonging to the woman.
The suspect is described as white, about thirty years-old, of average build with messy brown hair.
At the time of the offence he was wearing a black jacket with a hood, blue jeans and trainers.
He also had a dark flat cap.
Detectives are appealing for information from the public today after pursuing a number of lines of inquiry.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Lee Meechan, of the Metropolitan Police's Aviation Policing, said: "The victim is really upset that her belongings, including a laptop, have been stolen.
“The suspect could have handed the rucksack into staff, but instead he appears to have taken it for himself."
Anyone with information about this crime or who believes they know who the man in the CCTV footage is asked to call the investigating team on 020 3276 1351 or via 101.
