As the victim entered her PIN number into the cash machine outside HSBC bank in Mare Street on March 21 at around 12.30pm, a male suspect pushed her out of the way, withdrew £300 cash, then fled with her card.

The card was subsequently used in several stores.

One of the suspects is described as a black male, aged in his early twenties, clean shaven, with a slim face. He spoke in a London accent and was wearing a dark hat.

Anyone with information should contact DC Karen Johns from Hackney’s robbery squad on 020 7275 3159 quoting reference number CR4606827/13, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
