Two masked men attacked a man sitting in his car in east London and stole his watch and a bag containing £500.

The moment the 24-year-old victim was attacked was caught on CCTV on Ford Close on Monday 15th January at 5.30pm.

One of the men, wearing a balaclava, dragged the victim out of the car and demanded his wrist watch while the other opened the passenger side of the car and grabbed a Louis Vuitton bag containing £500 in cash.

The two suspects ran off and escaped in a black Audi A4 with false number plates.

"I am appealing to anyone who can assist this investigation to come forward and speak to police - these are violent men who need to be arrested."
