A woman in her Thirties and a man in his forties were said to be walking down Pond Place. On Monday before 3 pm, the pair was robbed in a quiet residential street in Chelsea.

Footage captured in CCTV shown by a concerned resident displays the woman was lying on the ground screaming at the victim and kicking her leg at a man, who both wore balaclavas.

The male victim tried to save the woman victim but was turned away before the man appeared to throw punches at him. During that, another alleged robber pulled the woman’s arm hard, which led to her body lifting off the floor.

‘This is a horrific incident; Such unacceptable violence should not be tolerated.‘Our dedicated robbery team is investigating and trawling CCTV , said CH Supt Owen Richards of the Central West Command Unit
