Drive-by robbers target two women in Cricklewood

Victims attacked and robbed in Ashford Road

The hunt is on to find a pair of drive-by robbers who targeted two women in Cricklewood on Hallowe’en night.

The victims, aged 30 and 57, were walking separately in Ashford Road at 11pm, when a family silver Estate car pulled up between them and two men jumped out.

One tried to grab one of the victim’s handbag before repeatedly punching her in her face when she resisted.

The second man snatched the other woman’s phone and bag.

Both men then turned on the first victim and attacked her until they managed to take her bag.

They made their getaway towards Olive Road.
