Pregnant woman shoved and told to hand over money

Police hunt teenager with scar across face

A heavily pregnant woman was pushed up against a fence by a teenager wanting money in Wembley last week.

The 43-year-old was walking along Chaplin Road, towards Ealing Road, when the boy shoved her and held her against the fence while he asked her for money.

When the woman said she had no cash, he ran off.

The boy is described as about 16-years-old, 5ft 11in and skinny. He was wearing a cream coloured zip-up hood top, black baggy tracksuit bottoms and brown zip-up trainers.
