NEIGHBOURS have spoken of their horror after a woman, believed to be pregnant, had a gold necklace snatched from her neck on a Swanscombe doorstep.

Residents of Church Road said they were shocked to hear of the incident which happened at 6.05pm on Thursday.

Police were called to reports of a robbery on the woman who was staying at her friends house.

Mother-of-two Helen Hunter, 26, of Church Road, Swanscombe, said: "It's terrifying that something could happen so close to where you live.

"We haven't heard anything about it.

"As a mother of two young children it has really rattled me.

"This is a good area and it's a scary thing to happen so close to your own home."

When the woman answered a knock at the door two teenagers, a girl and a boy, asked to speak to a person not living at that address.

When the woman told them that person didn't live there they left but returned moments later.

When the woman answered the door for a second time, the female offender attempted to push past while the male grabbed a chain from the victim's neck, before both ran from the house.

No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

Kent Police said enquiries are ongoing.
