Police hunting woman in connection with Queen’s Park kidnap and robbery
Detectives investigating an assault and kidnap in Queen’s Park on Monday have released an image of a woman they would like to to speak to.
Officers from Charing Cross are appealing for information after a 47-year old woman was hit over the head by a woman in Fernhead Road at 7.45pm before being forced into a car, bound and hooded and driven around for more than four hours.
Police are also particularly keen to speak to a woman who witnessed the assault and approached the suspect to see if the victim was okay.
The female suspect told her that the victim had fallen over and the witness went on their way.
The victim was then forced into the back of a dark coloured, three doored car before being bound, hooded and driven around until after midnight when a scheduled payment was credited to her bank account.
The CCTV image shows the female suspect at a cash machine at the BP Petrol Station on Mandeville Road in Northolt at 12.25am.
Cash was withdrawn from the victim’s account at the same time.
