Gold chain stolen from woman in Lowestoft

A GOLD chain was stolen from the neck of a 46-year-old woman as she waited at a Lowestoft bus stop at the junction of Rectory Road and London Road South.

The woman was at the stop at about 10.45am on Wednesday, May 30 when a dirty dark blue car pulled up just past the bus stop and two women got out of the back of the vehicle.

They approached and asked for directions in broken English.

As the 46-year-old woman tried to help, the women tried to put a god chain around her neck.

The two women left as a bus approached and moments later the woman discovered her own gold necklace had been taken.

Police are linking the crime with another similar incident that happened in a shop in London Road South about ten minutes later when a 70-year-old woman had her necklace stolen.

Officers need to trace a man and the two women who were in the dark blue saloon car who are all described as having dark complexions.
