CCTV | Elderly woman attacked in broad daylight at Belmore
Police have released CCTV footage of a callous thief who attacked an elderly woman in broad daylight in Sydney’s south-west.
The 79-year-old was walking along Leyland Parade at Belmore at about 11.40am on July 12.
Footage shows a man stalking her from behind before he allegedly attacked, snatching a gold chain from around her neck.
The chain broke with the man stealing half of it and the crucifix that was attached, before fleeing on foot.
The man is described as in his 30s, with olive skin, a skinny build, thick curly hair and had a moustache.
He was wearing a dark blue jumper with a white “Nautica” logo on the front, dark tracksuit pants and black joggers.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Police will address the media at 10.45am – more details to come
