PO­LICE have re­leased CCTV im­ages of women they want to trace in con­nec­tion with the theft of £400 from a pen­sioner in Uxbridge.

The vic­tim, who is in her 80s, with­drew the money from HSBC in the High Street at around 10.30am on Wed­nes­day March 11.

Po­lice say she put the cash in a brown bag and was fol­lowed into a jew­ellery shop in Wind­sor Street by two women.

In­side the shop, she was ‘pushed’ by one of the women who pre­tended to look at jew­ellery in­side a glass cab­i­net.

An ac­com­plice put her hand in the vic­tim’s hand­bag and stole the brown en­ve­lope, say po­lice.

Speak­ing about the heart­less theft, the vic­tim said: “The in­ci­dent has left me ner­vous. I’m still ner­vous when I go shop­ping and al­ways look over my shoul­der.”

Both sus­pects are de­scribed as in their early 30s, be­tween 5ft 6ins and 5ft 8ins.

One is of a slim build, has long dark hair and was wear­ing a black and white coat, brown boots and blue denim jeans.

The other is of a medium build, has short blonde hair, and was wear­ing a black coat, blue denim jeans and car­ry­ing a dark hand­bag.

Po­lice Sergeant John Hine, said: “We are ask­ing for the public’s as­sis­tance in help­ing us to iden­tify these two. Please look at the im­ages care­fully and con­tact us im­me­di­ately if you have any in­for­ma­tion.”

BBC Crime­watch’s road show on July 3 showed CCTV im­ages of the two fe­males in a bid to iden­tify them.
