Appeal following robbery in Clapham

5 Feb 2018

We are appealing for information following a robbery in Clapham on Thursday (1 February) evening.

At approximately 6.45pm, a man was walking on The Close, when he was approached from behind by a man who threatened him with a handgun and demanded he hand over money. The victim was subsequently forced into his home by two men, where he was made to hand over a sum of money.

One of the offenders is described as a black male, of slim build and wearing dark clothing and a balaclava.

Detective Constable Jason Wheeler, investigating, said: “The victim was left very shaken and I’m keen to hear from anybody who may have witnessed this incident. I would urge anyone with information to come forward as they may have something vital to our investigation.

“I would like to reassure the public that we take reports of incidents involving firearms incredibly seriously and we are committed to apprehending the offenders responsible.“

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Wheeler on 101, quoting crime number C/5130/18, or use our online reporting tool. To report crime anonymously, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111
