Detectives from Charing Cross CID have released CCTV of a woman they would like to speak to in connection with a kidnapping.

It happened at about 7.45 pm on 22 June in Fernhead Road, Westminster.

A 47-year-old woman was hit over the head by another woman and forced into the back of a dark coloured three door car.

A woman who witnessed the assault approached the victim to see if she was okay, but was told by the other woman that she had fallen over and so went on her way.

The victim was bound and hooded and driven around until after midnight when a scheduled payment was credited to her bank account.

The CCTV image shows the female suspect at a cash machine at the BP Petrol Station on Mandeville Road in Northolt at just after midnight.

Cash was withdrawn from the victim’s account. The woman pictured in the CCTV walked away from the cash machine in the direction of Mandeville Road.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who saw the woman in the image or a vehicle matching the description of the car.

The victim was kept in the vehicle throughout the incident, and was eventually released outside the Crown Public House on Ealing Road, Northolt shortly before 2 am.
