Police are hunting a female robber who attacked an old lady on her doorstep and forced her way into her Camden home before demanding cash.

Officers said the pensioner, aged 80, had been unlocking the door of her Oval Road home when she was pushed inside by the woman.

A Met spokesman said: “The victim told officers she had returned home and was unlocking her front door when she was pushed inside her address by an unknown woman.

“The victim tried to escape but was prevented from doing so by the suspect.”

The attacker then demanded cash forcing the victim to hand over £20 before leaving the scene. A woman aged 58 was arrested on suspicion of robbery on Sunday and released on police bail.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident at around 3pm on March 8 to contact them on 101, quoting 2306170/17
