Conman Robs Blind Woman In Her Home

A 75 year old blind woman was robbed by a conman who tricked his way into her home.

The incident happened at 3.15pm yesterday in London Road, Coventry.

The offender tricked his way into the pensioner's house and asked the victim for change for a 50 note. He took her purse out of her hand and stole 125 in cash.

He then had a drink of water and was heard to speak to a female accomplice outside the house. They then fled.

There is no description of the offender and police are anxious to hear from anyone that might have spotted a man and a woman acting suspiciously in London Road at the time.

Anyone who can help is urged to contact Chace Avenue police on 024 7653 9040.
