A WOMAN was reportedly robbed and threatened with a knife in Greenhithe earlier this month.

Kent Police is investigating the incident which occurred in Watermans Way, five days before another suspicious incident was reported on an adjoining road.

At 6.30pm on January 11 it is believed a woman in her 30s was approached by a man who held out a knife toward her before taking her handbag and running away. The victim was not injured.

Five days later officers responded to reports of a suspicious man near a block of flats in Ingress Park, an adjoining street to Watermans Way at around midnight.

Patrols conducted an area search but could not locate the man.

A spokesman for Kent Police said: “At present, the incidents are not being linked.

"Public safety is paramount for Kent Police and all relevant lines of enquiry will be followed up.”

Anyone looking to report a crime should call 101 if it is not an emergency and 999 if it is an emergency, life is in danger or a crime is in progress.
