Bank Customer Attacked In Street: Woman Robber Hunted

Police are hunting a female mugger after a 68 year-old man was knocked to the ground and had cash he'd withdrawn from a bank snatched.

Police in Haringey have released this image of a woman they would like to speak to in connection with the robbery, which left the victim suffering a hip injury.

On Friday, February 5 at 1.00pm, the victim was walking along Tottenham High Road, Tottenham, having used a cash machine inside Santander bank, Fore Street.

The victim was unaware he had been spotted by a woman inside the bank who followed him along the High Road.

As he approached Langhedge Lane, the woman pounced from behind and pushed him to the ground, taking the money from his jacket pocket.

The victim sustained an injury to his hip as a result of robbery and was taken by London Ambulance Service to a north London hospital where he was later discharged.

The suspect is described as a black woman, possibly of mixed race, aged around 40 to 45 years-old and was seen wearing a long dark jacket.

Anyone with information or who may have witnessed the incident is urged to call Haringey CID on 0203 276 3087 or via 101. To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
