A woman using a cash point machine on a parade of shops in Horsley was the victim of a robbery on Thursday (February 14).

The 45-year-old was taking money out of the ATM on Ockham Road North just after 8.15pm when she was suddenly aware of a man on her right hand side.

The offender pushed the customer aside, grabbed the notes and ran off towards a waiting car.

The victim, who screamed when the offence happened, managed to alert another woman in a neighbouring store and both women made chase.

The offender and the driver of the dark saloon get away car drove into the nearby railway station car park, where the vehicle turned around and then sped off towards the A3.

Detective Constable Andy Skoglund said: “This was a frightening experience for the victim, who was just carrying out an everyday chore when she was the victim of a robbery.

“At the time of the night when this incident happened there is likely to have been people milling around the parade of shops and restaurants and I would urge anyone who may have spotted the dark saloon car or witnessed the crime to contact me. You may have a detail which could help officers locate and bring these offenders to justice.”

Surrey Police BadgeTemporary Neighbourhood Commander Amy Buffoni said: “This type of incident is extremely rare in this semi-rural location and I want to reassure residents that there will be increased patrols in the area.

“It is always imperative that anyone using cash machines is alert to their personal safety and keeps a look out for anyone who may be acting suspiciously near an ATM.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference GD/13/1258. Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111.
