Police appeal to trace Jewish man who chased Golders Green burglars
AN URGENT appeal has been launched to try and trace a brave resident who pursued three burglars in Golders Green on Wednesday.
At 8.20pm a man left his house in Bridge Lane and saw two white men leaving his neighbour’s house. They confronted him and one claimed to have a knife.
Showing immense bravery the resident grabbed the man’s arm, but he slipped out of his jumper and both men ran away in the direction of Brent Street and were joined by a third man.
At this point a driver described as a Jewish man pulled up in a white or cream-coloured people carrier, asked if the resident was alright and set off in pursuit of the burglars.
The motorist retuned moments later and said he had seen the suspects in a Blue Renault Megane. Police are desperately trying to trace the driver of the people carrier so they can speak to him.
