|Spate of street muggings leads Police to issue warning|
Teenage suspects sought for string of thefts
Chiswick Police have issued a warning following a spate of muggings carried out by three teenagers.
Chiswick currently has what appears to be an emerging problem of street robbery involving three African Caribbean suspects aged between 15 years to 19 years old, unfortunately there is no better description available at this time.
The pattern of thefts emerged prior to Christmas and is continuing with most recent incident occuring near to Chiswick BR Station on Sutton Court Road on Wednesday 4th January 2006 at around 5.10pm.
On all occasions the suspects used force by pushing the victims and then taking property such as cash and mobile phones.
times of the offences are usually between 5.00pm and midnight. Although
all the offences happen in Chiswick, the areas are not specific and
would appear to be random although most occur when a person is at
their most vulnerable i.e. when alone, in a dark quiet area and usually
displaying the mobile phone.
calls will be treated with confidentially. Officer in the case for
the above mention Robbery offences is PC David Bendall.
