Crook targets wheelchair-bound pensioner to grab £20 of her money from cashpoint in shocking video

  • The CCTV footage shows the man reach over and take cash from the cashpoint 
  • The wheelchair-bound elderly woman can only watch as she is robbed by thug
  • A second woman, believed to be the OAP’s carer, was forced to hand over cash 
  • This is the shocking moment a wheelchair-bound pensioner was robbed by a heartless crook at a cashpoint.

    CCTV shows the OAP, in her 90s, sat beside an ATM in north London while a second woman – who appears to be her carer – withdraws money.

    A stocky man with short hair, wearing a black jacket and blue Adidas tracksuit bottoms, approaches and stands next to the ladies, eyeing them up.

    The man – who’s wearing a facemask – then leans in and forces the woman to give him the £20 she’s just withdrawn from the cashpoint.

    The woman in the wheelchair looks on as the thug takes the money and leaves.

    Madelaine Lazaga, who met the terrified old women at the scene, posted the shocking clip online.

    She said a man mugged her dad, 71, at an ATM on the same road about 30 minutes earlier, swiping his card and later withdrawing £250.

    Madelaine said: ‘When you see someone taking advantage of the elderly, especially when it’s this time of year, it really hits home.

    ‘My dad is an old man, he’d just retired two weeks before, it’s shocking how someone could do this.’

    On the elderly woman, she said: ‘She was so scared and she said: ‘He took 20’, it’s so sad.

    ‘The woman in her wheelchair looked like she was in her 80s or 90s, and both looked quite old. It looked like her daughter.

    ‘In the video the man pushed her and got her card and cash, being aggressive.

    ‘It’s the elderly and the vulnerable they attack so I won’t now go to the cash machine.’

    Madelaine’s father- who asked not to be named – is now recovering from his ordeal.

    He has been refunded by his bank. 

    The Met Police has been approached for comment.
