Tile Hill Pensioner Robbed

An 82-year-old Tile Hill woman was the latest victim to be robbed by a conman in her own home.

The incident took place yesterday afternoon at 3.15pm.

The offender knocked on her door and claimed to be a council worker making enquiries regarding cutting down trees. He asked the victim to get him a pen and while her back was turned he helped himself to her purse which was in her handbag in the living room.

The burglar took a black leather clasp purse containing the pensioner's bus pass and 19 in cash.

The offender is described as white, 6ft tall, in his early 20s with a solid build, round face and short dark hair. He was wearing a dark jumper and trousers.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the police at Little Park Street, Tile Hill Sector on 0845 113 5000.
