Distraction thefts Jewellry

Alert message sent 19/03/2019 19:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Recently we have received reports about another type of distraction thefts. These are the Jewellery Thefts.
The method is a female will approach seniors on the streets in residential areas or near the places of worship.
The female will embrace the victim and offer a piece of imitation jewellery, telling them that it belonged to a loved one, or it will bring good luck to them. Whether or not the item is accepted, the suspects try to place it around the victim’s neck or wrist, and in this process they will steal their valuable jewellery.

Some will realise later after few hours of what has happened.
Sometime if the victim realizes their jewellery is being removed, the suspects will resort to violence, pushing the victims to the ground

Many incidents have happened and the suspects are possibly the same group of men and women. The suspect female is usually accompanied by 2 males who are in a car watching
Some of the incidents are not reported to Police due to either Language barrier or feeling ashamed that they have been victim of crime.
We urge you that if you have been a victim please report this matter to Police.
