Police appeal: Elderly woman mugged

On Monday 25th January 2010 at approximately 13.30 hours in Hayden Park Road, junction with Askew Road W12 an elderly female was approached from behind and pushed on the back.  The man then proceeded to pull the females handbag from her and make off. 

The victim did not sustain any injuries during the incident.  The suspect is believed to be a young black male riding a bike.

Detective Sergeant Garry Poole for the Hammersmith and Fulham Robbery Squad said, “Robbery continues to fall on Hammersmith & Fulham for the fifth consecutive year.  It is unfortunate that an elderly female has been targeted and this incident is potentially linked to a further 6 incidents between the 10th December 2009 and the 25th January 2010 in the W12 area involving mainly elderly victims.  All are despicable offences against lone females.  Robbery Squad officers are working tirelessly to ensure this person will be caught and justice is provided for all the victims concerned.  These are cowardly attacks so I would urge anyone to forget any loyalty they may have with this person to come forward and make contact with the Detective Sergeant Garry Poole or Detective Constable Patrick McHale based in the Robbery Squad at Hammersmith on 020 8246 2678 call crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous".
