(PRWEB UK) 10 May 2013
It has been reported in Telegraph and Argus that police are warning residents in Bradford to be especially vigilant following two separate incidents during which two elderly women were targeted by conmen. The men claimed they needed to check the homes for damage and gas leaks, but upon their departure, the ladies discovered that their handbags had been stolen. Residents are now being warned not to allow people into their homes without proof of ID and are being urged to report any suspicious behaviour.
One of the suspects is described as being a light-skinned, possibly Asian man in his mid-thirties and approximately 5ft 10in tall, with the other suspect white, in his thirties, 5ft 5in with black hair.
