Cruel thief steals laptop from deaf victim in Holloway
A “cruel” man sneaked into a deaf centre and stole a laptop without the staff – none of whom can hear – noticing.
On February 11 at around 9.30am, the suspect crept into the Femaura Deaf Centre, in Caledonian Road, Holloway, through an unlocked back door.
As staff continued with their work unaware of the intruder, he took a Mac Book Pro computer, which can be worth up to �2,000, from a desk and made off with it.
Police have released a CCTV image of the suspect. He is black, aged 20 to 25, of slim build and with short hair.
The victim of the theft said: “I would appreciate the help of the public in identifying this person. This man cruelly took advantage of me as a deaf person and stole a laptop that contained work of great value to me.”
