POLICE in the Forth Valley are investigating after a disabled woman was robbed at an ATM over the weekend.

On Saturday at around 1pm, the woman who was in a mobility scooter was getting cash from an ATM on Stirling Street, Denny.

After inputting her pin, a man held her back before grabbing the money and running off. While the woman was uninjured, she was badly shaken and had a three-figure sum stolen from her.

The suspect is described as a slim male around 16-20-years-old and wearing an Adidas top and grey tracksuit bottoms with black shoes.

A spokesperson from Police Scotland confirmed the incident: “We are investigating following a robbery from an ATM which occurred on Saturday June 29, 2019 in front of the Co-operative store on Stirling Street, Denny.

“At around 1.05pm, a woman using a mobility scooter approached the cash point to withdraw money. A man has held the woman back, distracting her and grabbed the money from the ATM. The victim was left uninjured but extremely shaken by the incident. A three-figure sum of cash was stolen.

“The suspect is described as male, slim build, 16 - 20 years, wearing Adidas long sleeved top (black sleeves, black top half and white bottom half) with white stripes down sleeves, grey tracksuit bottoms and black shoes.”

Inspector Ewan Wilson, Falkirk Police said: This was a particularly upsetting incident for the victim, and we are appealing for anyone with any information at all that can assist to make contact with us. The top the male was wearing is quite distinctive and is hopefully something that someone in the community will recognise."
