A SERIAL robber is thought to be at large after four women - including two in their 60s - were attacked in Parklands Walk.

The two women were walking along the bridge over Stapleton Hall Road, Stroud Green, when they were grabbed and pulled into the undergrowth.

The man stole the women's purses and cash and caused minor injuries to both victims in the incident on Saturday, May 31 at 3.40pm. He reportedly fled in the direction of Finsbury Park.

Seven days later, on Saturday June 7 at 7.45pm, two females in their 40s were walking between Mount Pleasant Crescent and Ferme Park Road in Stroud Green, when they were grabbed by a male, who demanded money.

He struggled with one of the victims, causing her to fall and hit her head. It is believed he also fled in the direction of Finsbury Park.

Police believe the attacks could be linked and issued an appeal for the public's help in catching the suspect.

It is thought he may have been "bare-chested and holding a top".

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det Sgt Sean Carre-Brown from Haringey Robbery Squad on 0208-345 0855 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
