A woman in her 90s has been robbed twice in two days by a man who went to her Ramsgate home, demanded money and stole her purse and then returned the following day, pushed her to the floor, and stole a bank card and keys.
Police have released a computer-generated image of a man they want to speak to about the robberies.
The victim was subjected to multiple visits to her property in Grange Road in Ramsgate from the same suspect between 7 and 13 January.
On 7 January he went to the property with a second man, and spoke to the victim, claiming to know her relatives.
On Saturday 12 January at around 4pm, the man pushed his way into the property and demanded money from the victim. A purse containing money was reported stolen.
The following day (Sunday 13 January) between 4pm and 5pm he returned and pushed her to the floor. A bank card and keys were stolen during the incident. It was later confirmed the bank card had been used to withdraw cash.
The suspect is described as a white man, aged between 30 and 40 years old, with a slim build and around 5 ft 4 ins tall. He had short cropped light brown hair and wore glasses, a shirt and blue skinny jeans.
PC Mark Huttley: “This is a concerning report in which the victim has had money and cards stolen twice, and the same suspect is believed to be involved.
“Our officers are providing the victim with support and they will be carrying out patrols in the area.”
