 Do you know this man - Sandilands

Police have released an image of a woman they would like to speak to in connection with an attempted phone snatch at Sandilands tram stop on Monday, 2 July. Investigators have also released an image of a man who was around at the time as they believe he may be able to assist them with their enquiries.


Detective Sergeant Bob Stokoe, based at Croydon BTP station, said: “The 18-year-old victim from South Norwood had been travelling on a tram from New Addington and had got off at Sandilands where he was waiting to board another tram around 9pm.

“A woman and a man, who he had noticed from his journey, also got off at this stop and were waiting with him.

“A short while later, the woman approached him and demanded he give her his phone. As he moved away from the woman, she suddenly struck the man on the side of the head before running away.

“The incident has understandably left the victim feeling shocked and shaken.”

Officers are now calling on the public to come forward with any information they may have about the incident and which may assist the investigation.

DS Stokoe added: “We have made several lines of enquiry, including reviewing CCTV footage, and have since identified two people we think have key information about the incident. If you recognise either of them, please get in touch”

If you have any information please call British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.” In all calls please quote B4/LSA of 27/07/12
