Police officers are investigating after two teenagers attempted to rob a woman in Westgate.

At around 9.30pm on Monday 15 November a woman in her thirties was walking along Egbert Road, when two people approached her and demanded she give them her belongings.

The victim said she had nothing and the suspects pulled her hair before searching her coat pockets. They left empty-handed.

Both suspects were described as white, aged 15-17 years old, and slim.

The first suspect was 5 feet 8 inches tall, with blue eyes, and wore a dark scarf over his face. He also wore a dark coat with the hood up and blue jeans.

The second suspect was around five feet nine inches tall and wore black trousers, a black hooded top with the hood up and a black scarf over his face. He was wearing black and white trainers.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who has information regarding the incident or has private CCTV or dashcam footage in the area.

Witnesses should call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/235105/21.

  1. Bit late to ask for CCTV and dash cam footage now – it’s nearly a month ago! Why do the police always appeal for information so late!

    • They exhaust all lines of inquiry first-this takes time. Most cases are resolved within weeks, sometimes like here they aren’t.

  2. There are also two male thugs with knives hanging about the promenade near Westbrook after dark threatening people on their own to hand over their valuable belongings. Be careful and don’t walk on your own.

      • Not much point, they don’t want to know. A neighbour was threatened and was near Margate police station,good description and present location – told they didn’t have a taser trained officer available; result was no action taken until making an appeal a month later.
        Obviously too busy on woke patrol for crime to matter
