Knife wielding robbers on moped steal jewellery

Detectives in Croydon are appealing for information and witnesses after the occupants of a car were robbed by suspects on a moped.

At around 5:45pm on Friday, 8 June, a family of four adults were stationary in a car on Keats Way in Coulsdon when two males rode towards them on a silver moped.

One of the males threatened the occupants of the car with a large knife and demanded they hand over jewellery. It is believed that the second suspect also had a knife.

A 30-year-old woman sustained a cut to her hand as one of the suspects attempted to take her bracelet. The other occupants of the car, all of whom are related, were a 66-year-old man and two women aged in their 70s.

The suspects made off with a small quantity of jewellery.

The suspects are described as two white males, aged in their late teens or early 20s. Both were of slim build and wore dark coloured tracksuits, black crash helmets and facemasks.

Anyone with information that may assist the investigation is asked to call Croydon CID via 101 quoting reference 6135/8jun.
