 Published on: 11th December 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Police officers are issuing an appeal to trace the victim of a theft in Watford following the arrest of a potential suspect.

The victim had been sitting on the kerb near to the train station in High Street on Wednesday, June 26 when he approached by three males.

They allegedly stole his mobile phone, his Oyster card and money from his wallet.

Detective Constable David Herring, who is investigating, said: “Unfortunately, despite extensive enquiries, we’ve been unable to get back in contact with the victim.

“Following an arrest earlier this month, we believe we may have recovered some of the property that was stolen from him. We’d like to get back in contact with him, so we can follow up with the investigation and return his belongings.

“If you were the victim, or you think you might know the victim, please get in touch.”
