Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


FIRST:  A THEFT TECHNIQUE – CURRENTLY TAKING PLACE ACROSS THE THAMES VALLEY TO BE AWARE OF.  THIS HAPPENED IN SUNNINGDALE – BUT COULD HAPPEN ANYWHERE:

The Aggrieved drove back from playing golf past 2 women in his road and put his car in the garage.
He noticed what he believed to be the same two women at the top of his drive by the gate. They waved him over.  They asked for a charitable donation for a house for the deaf.
The women did not say anything but gestured towards a clipboard they were carrying.  The aggrieved thought they were deaf and donated £10 he had in his pocket.
The two women then started to physically and forcefully embrace him.  One of the women took hold of the aggrieved’s left arm.  The other woman pulled his head forward, so that they could kiss him and embrace him.

After this encounter the aggrieved went inside and a few minutes later noticed that his Rolex watch was missing from his left hand.

We have now heard this has been happening elsewhere across the Thames Valley and is a standard M.O.  These women were in Sunningdale – did this happen to you ?  Do you have any information that would assist the police ?  Ref. No:  43210253970

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

The lockdown has resulted in many neighbourhoods drawing closer together in supporting local residents with needs, and in neighbours spending a lot more time talking to each other over fences or across the road. This has improved community spirit no end, and a great way to keep this spirit alive is for residents to join their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or start up a new scheme if there is not already one covering their respective street.

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about looking out the window and being alert for any crime in the neighbourhood, it is much more than that. It serves as a valuable resource for crime prevention, in supporting the Police with things such as local home security surveys, installing crime prevention aids in homes for the vulnerable and elderly especially, helping those vulnerable and elderly residents with any other needs, and in drawing residents together in supporting one another.
 
The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot. Its Facebook page (@WindsorAscotNHW) is receiving multiple enquiries from interested residents and serves as a means to highlight local issues relating to crime and residents in need. New NHW schemes are continuously being set up with active Coordinators, and residents within those scheme areas can now benefit from the new initiatives being introduced by Neighbourhood Watch and Thames Valley Police.
 
To search for your nearest NHW scheme, or to set up a new scheme, visit www.ourwatch.org.uk and enter your postcode. 

For any questions relating to Neighbourhood Watch please contact the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association at contact@windsorascotnhwa.org.uk
