A vulnerable 72-year-old man was robbed of his £5,000 stamp collection in an alleyway in Enfield.

He was walking from Canning Square to Magpie Close when a man, described as olive skinned and wearing a hooded top, turned and grabbed him from behind.

The robber rummaged through his pockets and stole a wallet containing his Freedom Pass and debit card, his phone, an umbrella and a catalogue of collectable stamps.

Following the attack at 10.20pm on December 10, 2020, police today (Thursday) issued an appeal for information.

Detective Constable William Darko investigating said: “This was a cowardly offence committed against a vulnerable elderly gentleman who has been deeply affected by the incident.

“Sadly, we are well aware that the effects of becoming a victim of robbery can run far deeper than a loss of property.

“I know that some time has passed since this incident occurred and urge anyone who was offered the stamps for sale, or bought the stamps, to contact police immediately.”
