Police appeal after man has wallet stolen in supermarket car park

Stratford Editorial 2nd Jun, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A MAN in his 60s had his wallet stolen in a supermarket car park in Alcester.

The man had been shopping in Waitrose off Moorfield Road on Saturday (May 28) but as he left noticed another man pushing a small trolley in the store’s entrance.

He appeared to be looking at the plants in the lobby and had nothing in his trolley so the man returned to his car.

As he was unloading his shopping sometime between 1pm and 1.45pm he saw the man from the lobby and another man at the back of his car.

The man from the lobby was carrying an A4 size book and approached the victim, asking for directions to Nottingham and looking at a map inside the A4 book.

The second man then moved behind the victim before leaving in the direction of the High Street and shortly afterwards the first man stopped talking and also left in the direction of the High Street.

On returning home, the man realised his brown leather wallet – containing several cards including debit cards – was no longer in his pocket.

The man who was seen in the lobby area is described as being in his mid-to-late 30s, of slight build and around 5ft6in.

He is believed to be of eastern European or Asian appearance and was clean shaven with short black hair. He was wearing a dark blue jacket with long sleeves and dark coloured trousers at the time of the incident.

The second man is though to be around 5ft6in, heavily built and about 50 years-old. He had grey and white hair and was wearing a white long-sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled up, and dark trousers.

Police are appealing for anyone who recognises the descriptions of either men or who witnessed the incident to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
