Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after a robbery in Silbury Boulevard.

A 39-year-old woman was walking home from a night out on Saturday when she stopped to use the cashpoint in Silbury Boulevard at about 10pm.

After she had withdrawn the money, she was shoved from behind causing her to fall over, and the money she had withdrawn — £30 — and her bankcard were stolen from out of her hand.

The victim then saw two men and woman running away.

The men were described as wearing dark clothing. The woman was wearing a black short skirt, with tights and flat shoes. She is described as having a larger build.

The three robbers ran off through the underpass across Witan Gate towards the railway station.

Det Con Reg Jones said: “Thankfully the victim wasn’t badly hurt in this incident and escaped with grazes to her legs.

“However, she has been left very shaken by this incident.

“I am keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the area at the time of the incident, who may have seen these people immediately prior to, or after, the robbery.

“I would always urge people to be vigilant to their surroundings when withdrawing money from cashpoints late at night.”

Anyone with information should contact Det Con Jones via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Line on 0845 8 505 505. Alternatively, you can contact the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
