Helen's Family: "Despite this victory for justice there can be no celebration"
34-year-old woman robbed in Luton
Police in Luton are appealing for information from the public after a 34 year old woman was robbed on Sunday, February 20.
The incident happened on a bridge close to Knights Fields in Luton at approximately 7pm when the victim was approached from behind and pushed to the ground.
She managed to struggle but as she did the offender threatened to punch her in the face before taking her bag and running towards Wardown Park with another man.
Both men are described as black, medium build and wearing dark clothing with hoods covering their faces.
The victim’s black leather bag contained a unique pair of vintage gold and diamond drop earrings, a heavy vintage thick 24cc gold bracelet, a 14cc gold link chain bracelet, a white gold engagement ring with one large diamond and a white gold wedding band with 3 small diamonds set into the ring.
DC Joanna Bosson, investigating, said the victim is extremely distressed, with bruising and tenderness to her right arm sustained during the robbery but it is hoped that someone may have seen the offenders emptying the bag which was found discarded in Wardown Park shortly after the incident.
She said: “This was a shock to the victim who is now recovering but the jewellery that was taken is of great personal value and some of it once belonged to her grandmother these items cannot be replaced.
“This jewellery is very distinctive and I would urge anyone who has seen or been offered any items matching the descriptions given to come forward and help with this investigation.”
Anyone with information can contact DC Bosson at Luton Police Station, in confidence, on 01582 394493, or text information to 07786 200011, or contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
