Police are appealing for witnesses and information following an attempted robbery which occurred in Wheathampstead on Monday, October 27th.

Between 4.15pm and 4.30pm the victim, a woman in her 70s, had been walking her dog along Lower Luton Road when a black saloon car with three men and one woman inside pulled up next to her. The woman in the car asked for directions to the hospital and then placed a ring in the victims hand before trying to take the victims rings from her fingers. She wasnt able to take anything and the car was driven off towards Wheathampstead.

I would also like to ask residents in the area to be careful if you are approached in these circumstances and report any suspicious activity.”
