Two robberies in Chiswick this Sunday may be linked
Police are hunting for two men after a robbery in Reckitt Road in the early hours of Sunday (24th October) morning. They were driving a maroon Audi Estate.
A 29 year old woman was driving westbound on the A4 at around 2am when she noticed the car ahead of her near the Hogarth Roundabout. She then turned right up Devonshire Road at which point the car appeared behind her. She turned left into Fraser Street by the Duke of York pub then right into Dale Road. Then she attempted to park in Reckitt Road. The Audi pulled up behind her and the passenger got out and smashed the window of her car demanding that she hand over her bag which she did. The bag contained cash cards, cosmetics and house keys.
The man is described as a white male, skinny, of about average height, aged around 30 years of age with a London accent. He was wearing a shiny black bomber jacket.
Later that morning at around 7am, a 47 year old woman had her bag stolen at the bus stop (for buses travelling towards Shepherd's Bush on Bath Road near Turnham Green tube. A car, in this case described as a dark Audi Estate, was travelling towards Acton Green but crossed to the other side of the road and pulled up in front of the bus stop. The passenger got out and grabbed a bag from the woman whilst shouting abuse at her. He then returned to the car and it made off in the direction of the mini-roundabout near Turnham Green tube. The bag stolen was a brown Armani leather bag containing credit cards and a driving license. The bag snatcher is described as being of mixed race, thin, around 5ft 10" wearing a short beige jacket, a baseball cap and dark bottoms.
