Old Lady Robbed By Conmen

A 77 year old woman was robbed in her home yesterday by two conmen who offered to cut her grass.

The incident took place around 1pm in the Fynford Road area of Radford, Coventry.

Two men called at the pensioner's home and asked if she wanted her lawns cut and they agreed a price.

One man started to cut the grass, and whilst the woman was distracted, they took her money and fled.

The two made off in a yellow Ford Escort van. They were both white men and both aged about 20. One was 6ft tall, of skinny build and the other was about 5ft 2in tall, of stocky build and wearing a fluorescent jacket.

The amount of cash stolen is not being released.

Police at Little Park Street are investigating and appealing for witnesses or anyone with any information to contact them on 024 7653 9010 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
