Distraction thieves target blind woman, 86, in Willesden
The hunt is on to find two cowardly distraction thieves who targeted an elderly blind woman in Willesden.
The crooks struck after the 86-year-old victim had visited a bank in Walm Lane, with her carer, and cashed a cheque.
They were approached by a man and woman after driving down the road and one started talking to the carer and the other to the elderly woman.
The victim noticed the cash was missing from her bag when she got home.
The theft took place on March 11 at around 3.40pm but the details have only been released today by police who are appealing for information.
