Police are appealing for information after two women fought back against a thief who tried to steal the cash they were withdrawing from an ATM in Worcester Park.
The women, aged 25 and 27, were taking money out of the Barclays cash machine in Central Road, watched by a man on a bicycle immediately behind them.
As the notes appeared from the machine, the cyclist lunged forward to grab the cash. But the girls fought him off and pushed him away. He then spat at one of the girls, who reacted by pulling him off his bike. It happened on Sunday, 9 June.
