Man on mobility scooter robbed in the subway in York Road, Watford
A disabled man on a mobility scooter was robbed of his laptop in a central Watford underpass.
Hertfordshire Constabulary said the victim was travelling through the subway in York Road at around 12.40 pm on Monday with his laptop in its bag between his feet on the scooter.
Location of the incident
He was then approached from behind by someone who grabbed the bag and ran off towards the town centre.
PC Jon Brown, investigating the incident, said: "Any theft is a shocking crime but this one appears more so as the victim is so vulnerable. I would urge anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who may have been in or around the underpass near York Road prior to it happening to get in touch."
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Brown on 101 quoting crime reference number C4/13/1971, or alternatively Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555 111.
