Silver Mercedes linked to attack on elderly women as Gardai scour CCTV
Gardai are hunting for a silver car which they suspect was used in two attacks on two elderly women in the Greystones area recently.
According to Sargent John Fitzpatrick, the silver A Class Mercedes could hold the key to solving the crimes, which saw both women have their handbags snatched.
Detectives are also studying CCTV from the area as they hunt for the thieves.
On Monday evening at approximately 7pm in Redford Park, a woman had her handbag taken by a man as took shopping from her car.
The attacker is believed to being small and aged in his twenties while the driver of the car was an older larger man.
In a separate incident last Saturday, a woman had €700 in cash and her phone stolen during an attack in Woodlands Court.
Gardai are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed anything around the time of both attacks.
