Detectives investigating an attempted robbery have released e-fit images of two men they want to speak to.
A woman in her 40s reported that she walking her two dogs down an alleyway off Thames Way, near West Street, Northfleet, when she was approached by two men drinking lager from cans.
One of the men said he wanted to stroke the dogs.
The woman asked them not to and carried on but the two men became agitated and began following her, telling the woman they would take the dogs.
One of the men grabbed the victim by the wrist while the other took hold of one of the dog’s leads. The woman pulled away and managed to run off with both the dogs.
DC Julia Pexton of Kent Police, said: “This incident left the woman badly shaken. She has helped us compile e-fit images of the two men who approached her and I’d ask anybody who recognises these people to contact me as soon as possible.”
The incident happened at around 10.30pm on May 17 but details have only just been released.
Both men are described as being around 25 to 30 and of proportionate build. One was around 5ft 8ins and the other around 5ft 10ins. Both wore dirty blue jeans and checked shirts.
Anybody with information is asked to contact DC Pexton on 01474 366001. Alternatively, to remain anonymous, call Kent Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
