Detectives are appealing for information following a violent robbery at an ATM machine in Brent.
On Sunday, 31 March police were called to Ealing Road, Wembley after a 70-year-old man was viciously attacked whilst withdrawing money from a cash machine.

A man approached the victim from behind as he withdrew cash, assaulted him and knocked him to the ground leaving him unconscious. As the victim lay motionless, a woman stole his cash from the ATM before both suspects fled.
Police and the London Ambulance Service attended the scene, and the victim was taken to hospital where he was treated for his injuries, which included a fracture to the skull.

He has lost hearing in one ear as a result of the attack, and now has mobility issues which means he has had to stop work.
Detective Sergeant Muhamed Ahmed from the Priority Crime Unit which covers Wembley said:
“We have searched through many hours of CCTV and we believe we know who we are looking for – a woman can be seen in a fur hoodie with camouflage trousers hovering around the area where the ATM machine is. The same woman can then be seen speaking with another suspect, a man with a dark beard wearing a jacket with the hood up. The CCTV then later shows them both running away after the robbery.
“I am appealing to the public for help – if you know or recognise either of the suspects then please come forward to police. This was a premeditated attack which left an elderly man injured. I ask you to come forward by calling 101 or ‘X’ @MetCC and quote CAD5682/31MAR24. You can also provide information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
