Swale Police officers, investigating a report of an attempted theft from a pensioner in Sittingbourne, have released a CCTV image.
At around 10am on Tuesday 8th March an elderly man withdrew a quantity of cash from a High Street bank.
He walked to his car which was parked in St Michael’s Road and placed the money inside.
At this point it is alleged a man approached the victim and told him he had a flat tyre.
While the victim was distracted a woman is reported to have attempted to steal the money, but was foiled when the victim became suspicious.
