Hertfordshire police are looking to identify two men who robbed a lady in her seventies who was sitting in her mobility scooter at Fairlands Valley Park in Stevenage.
The woman was approached by two men, one of them tried to take her handbag from around her neck, while the other took her kindle from her hands before they both ran off.
The woman was struck on the head during the robbery which happened between 4pm and 4.30pm on Thursday 19th April.
Several members of the public rushed to help the woman and later recovered the Kindle.
- The first offender is described as:
- Middle eastern between 5ft 5 in and 5ft 6 in tall and medium build
- Aged between 25 and 35
- With short black hair and a black beard
- Wearing a blue polo shirt and dark jeans
- The second offender is described as:
- Middle eastern, between 5ft 7in and 5ft 8in tall and medium build
- Aged between 25 and 35
- Short black hair and a black beard
- Wearing a grubby-looking grey sports jacket
“This was a cruel attack on a vulnerable lady who was left understandably distressed by what happened. I would like to commend the members of the public who came to her aid and saw the Kindle returned to her. However, they did not leave their details so we have not yet been able to speak to them. If this was you, please make contact with us as soon as possible."
Police say the area would have been busy because of the hot weather and they are appealing for anyone who witnessed the robbery to come forward.
