AN ELDERLY man was harassed and robbed of his Rolex watch by two women in Waltham Chase earlier today.

The incident happened at around 11.15am today (Wednesday) on Clewers Lane.

The victim, an 86-year-old man, was on Bull Lane when two unknown women approached him before forcibly stealing his Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch from his wrist. He received minor injuries as a result of the incident.

A police spokesperson said: "The suspects made off toward down Clewers Lane and possibly arrived and left the area in a small blue car."

The two women are described as white women in their mid 20s, both around 5ft 3ins tall with slim builds, wearing white face masks, and spoke with an Eastern European accent. One of the women had short neck length dark brown hair.

The spokesperson added: “Were you in the area at the time? Perhaps you saw two women matching this description in the area, or have doorbell/dash cam footage that may have captured them?”
