Kensal gym robbed at knife-point

A man pretending to be an electrician forces woman to hand over cash

A FAKE electrician robbed a woman at knife point at the female-only gym where she worked.

The man, believed to be in his forties, demanded �85 from the member of staff after checking the meter at Sahara Gyms, in Harrow Road, Kensal Town, between 12.40 and 12.55pm on January 18.

He demanded the cash after pretending to call over the gym’s owner but pulled out the knife when the victim said she would have to check with him first.

The man was described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, of slim build, had messy hair and spoke with a foreign accident.
