Man Charged in Connection to Robbery of Elderly Woman in Swanley

A man has been charged in connection to a robbery that took place in Swanley, where an elderly woman was robbed of her gold chain while walking along London Road.

The incident occurred on Tuesday, April 2, when the woman, in her 70s, was approached by the suspect around 1:30pm. The incident took place outside a property near London Road, as shown on Google Street View.

According to reports, the victim initially mistook the suspect for a woman she had encountered earlier outside a supermarket in Orpington. The suspect, who was allegedly asking for charity signatures, got closer to the victim and reached for her gold chain before taking it.

Police were alerted and a suspect was arrested later that same day. Daniela Niculai, a 30-year-old resident of Nightingale Road in Edmonton, Greater London, has been charged with robbery. She appeared before Sevenoaks Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, April 4, and was remanded in custody until her next court appearance on May 3 at Maidstone Crown Court.
