A woman found herself face to face with a gunman after getting lost in the Chiswick area late at night.

The incident occurred on Friday 25th November between 0100 and 0200 in Cavendish Road, near to a field. The 35 year old woman had got lost after leaving an address in Chiswick and was sitting in her black Saab 900 motor car looking at a map.

She heard a tap on the car window and when she looked up she saw a man was pointing a brown handled gun at her . He started swearing at her, demanding money, cards and her keys which she passed over. The suspect then ran off. The terrified victim stayed in her car for hours before attempting to get help as she couldn’t drive without the keys.

The suspect is described as a black male, 23 years, 5’5”, wearing a grey baggy khaki hooded top with a dark handkerchief tied round his face, large dark bottoms.
