|Police hunt female after robbery of 84 year old woman|
Public reminded not to allow unknown visitors into homes
Police are reminding elderly and vulnerable people to guard against unwanted callers who use false pretenses to enter premises following the robbery of an 84 year old Isleworth woman on Monday 3rd January.
A young woman knocked on the door of a house in Amhurst Gardens. When the 84 year old resident opened the door the caller asked for information on a resident further down the street. She then asked for a pen and paper to write down some information, at which point the elderly woman invited her into the house.
The caller then asked for a drink of water, drank some and left the house. On going upstairs the 84 year old realised that someone had been upstairs. She discovered that £100 had been taken from a cupboard.
The suspect is described as being in her late teens or early twnties, 5' 4 inches tall with light brown collar length hair. She was wearing dark trousers and a light jacket and gave her name as 'Lisa'.
Anyone with any information is asked to call 020 8247 6443 where your calls will be taken in the strictest confidence.
