A 70 year old male was attacked on Martell Road, SE21 just off Robson Road on Monday 16 August at around 9:10pm The suspect, who made off with a briefcase, was described as wearing all dark clothing. As it happened so quickly the 70 year old man was unable to recall any further details. In a separate incident a 75 year old female was targeted and had her handbag stolen. This incident happened on Probyn Road, SW2 at around 7:40pm on Thursday 9 September. The suspect is described as a black male aged around 30 years old and approximately 5ft 6” in height. This clothing this time was a dark shirt with white trousers and a white hat A third incident on Friday 10 September saw an 80 year old female removed of her handbag on Lansdowne Hill, SE27 at around 2:35pm. The suspect was described a black male aged between 23 and 30 years old. Police are keen to trace anyone in the area who may have seen or heard something as they believe the incidents may be linked. Inspector Nick Fallowfield of Lambeth Police Safer Neighbourhoods Team said, “at this stage the suspect described for two of the incidents is similar and as there is no description for the third incident it is possible that this is the work of just one person. If anyone has any suspicions as to whom this suspect is then please call the below numbers. Furthermore I urge our elderly community to be aware of their surroundings and to call police if they think a potential suspect is approaching them. In addition do seek the assistance from other members of the public and call loudly for “help” ”. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Lambeth Police Robbery Squad on 0208 649 2439 or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
