A woman was mugged at a Natwest cash point in High Road, Seven Kings, this morning.
Jackie Hancock was withdrawing money at about 9am when a man ran up to her and pushed her.
The man, who is described as tall and Asian, took what was in her hand before running away.
A witness chased the man down an alley behind Natwest Bank, but he got into a vehicle and speed away.
The witness managed to get the number plate of the vehicle and reported it to Natwest.
