Police in Ealing have released a CCTV still of a man they would like to speak with after an elderly woman was the victim of a robbery.

The incident happened at Hanwell Cemetery, W7 at 13:30hrs on Thursday, 24 December.

The victim, a 73-year-old woman, was cleaning her late husband’s grave on Christmas Eve when she was approached from behind and robbed of her handbag causing her to fall to the ground.

After stealing the handbag, the suspect left the cemetery at 13:32hrs walking off briskly towards Church Road whilst covering his face. 
The suspect is described as a skinny man, about 5ft 9ins tall. He was wearing a black scarf covering his face, a grey hooded top, a black coat and jeans.

The handbag was recovered by a member of the public nearby but the woman’s purse was missing.

The woman sustained minor injuries during the robbery. 
The robbery took place in broad daylight and police are keen to speak to members of the public who saw a man matching this description walking briskly away from the scene, with his face covered and hood up.

Anyone who has information about the incident or who recognises the man should call Ealing CID via 101 or email [email protected] or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
