A 90-year-old woman was robbed of £150 by a man pretending to be a window cleaner.

The thief knocked on the lady’s door saying he had come to collect his pay for cleaning the windows.

Because she didn’t recognise him she thought he was collecting payment for her regular cleaner.

The thief entered the woman’s house and made a remark about a dirty window.

While the woman was distracted he stole £150 from her purse.

Sutton police are hunting for a young white man, wearing light-coloured clothing, who was in the area at the time.

He was seen picking up a bicycle further down the street before cycling off.
