Four men are being sought by police after a woman had £4,000 stolen from her as she boarded a bus in Chiswick.

The police believe that the men followed the 70-year-old woman after she withdrew the cash from Barclays Bank on Chiswick High Road on Friday, 7 August. They then followed her as she boarded an E3 bus and took the money from the victim’s bag.

The suspects are described as:

A white male, aged 50-60 years old, approximately 5ft 5ins tall and of large build. He had a round face and grey or white hair. The male was well dressed in a plain blue shirt and dark trousers.

A white male, aged around 25-years-old, approximately 6ft tall and of slim build. He had short dark brown hair and was well dressed in a beige shirt and dark brown trousers.

The other two suspects were both described as white men, aged around 25-30 years, of slim to medium build. They both wore light coloured shirts and dark trousers. One wore a dark jacket, before removing this during the theft.

All four suspects spoke with foreign accents, possibly eastern European.
