Officers who are investigating a robbery in Hemel Hempstead where a necklace was stolen have released photo of it as part of their enquiries.

The incident happened in an underpass between Rant Meadow and St Albans Road between 9.25am and 9.45am on Tuesday, October 20.

The victim, a woman in her 50s, was approached by a man walking in the opposite direction.

He pushed her against the wall of the underpass before stealing her purse, her smart watch, and a rose gold crucifix from around her neck.

During the robbery, the victim hit her head on the wall and suffered a minor cut as a result. The offender left in the direction of Rant Meadow before the victim made her way home to call police.

The offender is described as white, between 5ft 9ins and 5ft 10ins tall and aged in his late 30s.

He was wearing a light-grey baggy hoodie with the hood up, light grey jogging bottoms and a black bandana style mask across the bottom of his face.

Detective Constable Michael Durrant, from the Dacorum Local Crime Unit, said: “This incident left the victim feeling shaken and nervous of leaving her home.

“We have already made extensive enquiries into this offence, but we have decided to release a photograph of this distinctive necklace to see if anyone had been offered it for sale, or has any information about it.”
