Crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers is appealing for information about a man who police want to speak to in connection with two thefts at cash machines in Norwich.

The first theft took place at around 10.10am on Saturday, September 29 outside the Halifax in St Stephens Street, when an elderly woman went to use a cash machine and was distracted by a man waving a piece of paper.

The man then informed her the machine was broken before appearing to leave with her cash machine card.

A short time later a similar man approached a woman at a cash machine outside Barclays, in Red Lion Street, again distracting the victim before taking her bank card. A significant amount of cash was then later withdrawn from the woman’s account.

The appeal currently features on the ‘Most Wanted’ section of the Crimestoppers website at http://wanted.crimestoppers-uk.org

Ann Scott, Crimestoppers eastern regional manager, said: “If you have any information on who might have committed this despicable act on an elderly lady, no matter how insignificant you feel it may be, you can give information to Crimestoppers 100pc anonymously.”

It is recommended the man is not approached and that members of the public with any information about his whereabouts should contact police as soon as possible.

- Anyone with information should Norfolk Constabulary on the non-emergency 101 number or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
