Police are appealing for information after an elderly woman was robbed of her jewellery at a bus stop in St Albans recently.

The woman, in her 70s, was waiting at a bus stop in Folly Lane when she was approached by a man and two women.

The group removed her gold necklace and earrings before getting in a vehicle and driving off on Saturday, November 8 shortly before midday.

PC Matt Duric, who is investigating, said: “This is a disgraceful and unusual crime which targeted a vulnerable woman.

“The victim has been left extremely shaken by what has happened.

“I am appealing for anyone who was in the area around the time and saw what happened to contact me as soon as possible.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area, either prior to or around the time of the incident.”
