Westwell pensioner threatened with knife by robbers

By Charlie Harman

Two robbers who entered a home and threatened the occupant with a knife, have made off with a number of expensive watches.

At around 8pm on Wednesday, two men with eastern European accents entered a property in Westwell near Ashford.

The intruders threatened to use kitchen knives from the property to harm the victim - a man in his 70s - if he tried to raise the alarm.

A number of designer handbags, jewellery and watches were stolen.

Amongst the watches stolen were a stainless steel Breitling for Bentley watch with a black face, a stainless steel Frank Muller King Conquistador watch with a red face and a black steel chronograph Uboat watch.

Also taken were a stainless steel Panerai, a stainless steel chrome Rolex Daytona featuring a white face, a Cartier Ballon Bleu watch with a stainless steel and gold strap with a diamond bezel, and a IWC perpetual calendar big pilot featuring a rose gold case with a brown leather strap.

The first suspect was described as a slim white man, 6ft tall, and dressed in black with a ski mask covering his face.

The second man was also a slim white man, around 6ft tall. He had dark brown eyes, and also wore black clothing.

Anyone who has information is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/43263/19.
