Senior citizen robbed at home

An 82-year-old woman was robbed in her home in the Marxstraße on Friday, 14th July, 2017 between 10.40am and 11.10am.

It appears that whilst one of the thieves used a cover story to gain access to the flat and distract her, the second thief went looking for valuables in the bedroom.  They then fled with several thousand Euros worth of items.

Detectives in Bad Homburg would like anyone with information to call them on 06172 1200.
