80 Year Old Suffers Heart Attack After Being Mugged

Check the CC:TV image and compare it to the description of the suspect at the very bottom.

From The Islington Tribune:

THIS is the image of a man police wish to interview after a pensioner suffered a heart attack following a robbery.

Islington police have issued CCTV stills in a bid to find the man, who they hope will be able to help them with their investigation.

The 80-year-old victim, who is the sole carer of her disabled partner, had withdrawn just under £1,000 from HSBC bank in Seven Sisters Road, Holloway, when she was confronted by a man.

He stopped her as she walked into Hanmer Walk on the Andover estate and, after a brief struggle, ran off with her money in the direction of Hornsey Road, Holloway.
The pensioner attempt­ed to give chase but collapsed.

Neighbours who heard her screams rushed to help. Complaining of chest pains, she was admitted to hospital, where it was confirmed she had suffered a heart attack.

The woman is still recovering in hospital, while her partner is being looked after by her family.

The suspect is describ­ed as aged 18-28, 5ft 11in tall with short black hair.
He was wearing a dark coloured jacket.
