The man threatened the three-year-old in gardens by Bromley Parish Church.

The robbery, which took place last month, is being connected to a spate of thefts in the area.

Just days earlier three 17-year-old girls in Churchill Garden were approached late at night by a man asking for the time. The teenagers tried to ignore him but were followed and threatened with a knife.

The robber stole their phones and money before escaping towards Shortlands train station.

They describe the suspect as a six-foot-tall black male in his 20s, of slim build with short hair.

These were terrifying robberies where the suspect targeted women, even threatening a child.

We need to trace the person responsible, and would urge anyone with information about information about these incidents or a potential suspect to get in touch with us.
