A spokesperson for NE London Shomrim, Chaim Kahan said: “This was a horrific robbery, the woman is still very shaken and scared to leave her home. The two year old girl who was toppled over in the buggy, has since had terrible nightmares, waking up every few minutes, asking if the robber has already been caught”
