Hull residents in and around Beverley Road are being urged to take care following a trio of necklace robberies in the space of three days.

Police issued the warning after three women were injured – two of them aged over 70 and the other between 50 and 59 years old.

One of the victims sustained a break to her wrist after falling over. All of them suffered neck reddening.

The suspect has the same description in each incident. He is said to be white, in his 20s, with a medium build, light-coloured, short hair and about 6ft in height.

Hardy Street was the scene of the first robbery a week last Sunday (October 18) at about 6pm. The victim had a gold necklace taken from around her throat.

Stepney Lane was the venue of the two other incidents last Tuesday (October 20 at 2.20pm) and Wednesday (October 21 at 1.30pm).

Adrian Dalby from Humberside Police’s community policing squad is not yet linking all three robberies.

Detective Sergeant Dalby is appealing for witnesses to ring the police on 101. They can quote logs 432, 241 and 241 from October 18, 21 and 22 respectively. They can ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
