Archant

This is the face of a man officers in Hackney would like to speak to in connection with a robbery on a woman outside the Geffreye Museum in Shoreditch.

The 25-year-old was walking along Kingsland Road with a male companion at about 11.40pm on Tuesday August 9 when three suspects approached them and one tried to grab her handbag.

The man pulled the bag, shaking the woman around until he knocked her to the ground, and made off with the bag in the direction of the Geffreye Court Estate, with his two accomplices.

Police say he was black, about 25 years old, 5ft 9ins tall and large.

He was clean shaven with a round face, large nostrils and big lips. He was wearing a black hooded top and a black and white checked shirt.

Anyone with information should call DC Bennett on 020 7275 3232, quoting reference 4621361/11, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
