Appeal to trace scooter enabled robbers who left victim with dislocated shoulder

Detectives in Hounslow are hunting for two scooter enabled robbers who left a woman with a dislocated shoulder and bruised hand after she tried to stop them stealing a suitcase from the passenger seat of her car.

At approximately 15:20hrs on Thursday, 31 August the woman, aged in her twenties, was sat in her car which was parked on Stamford Brook Avenue, W6 - Metropolitan police.

Two suspects on a moped drove towards the vehicle before one of the suspects jumped off the moped, opened the passenger front seat and grabbed hold of the victim's suitcase.

The female victim held on to her property, which contained professional photography equipment she used in her job and a struggle ensued.

The suspect punched the female's hand which caused her to release the bag. The suspect then got back on the moped along with the other male.

The female victim exited her vehicle and bravely grabbed hold of the handheld suitcase again but the moped was driven off dragging the female along for 20 meters before she released the suitcase.

As the result of the incident, the victim sustained a dislocated shoulder and bruised hand. She is now recovering in hospital.

The incident occurred at Stamford Brook Avenue near the Shell Petrol Station, W6. The suspects drove off towards Stanford Brook Road.

No arrests have been made. Enquiries are ongoing.

T/DC Rabeneck from Hounslow CID said:"A hard working woman was getting on with her day when these two individuals have targeted her and stole property she used to earn a living. The victim bravely fought for her suitcase but suffered serious injury as the two suspects who wore dark coloured clothing made off and dragged her along the road. I hope the release of the image of them will help identify them."

"If anyone recognises the scooter and or the suspects pictured please contact CID at Hounslow on 0208 247 6135. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
