Police: £20k for Jewish pensioner murder leads

By Robyn Rosen, December 29, 2009

A £20,000 reward is being offered for information on the murder of a Jewish pensioner in Stamford Hill a year ago.

Eveline “Lina” Kelmenson, 83, was discovered by police with her legs bound by duct tape in the top-floor bedroom of her three-storey house in Leweston Place on January 1, 2009, after her niece raised the alarm.

Police have reissued an appeal for information and have released further details about items stolen from the house. These include a gold chain that Miss Kelmenson wore around her neck and a Russian gold wedding band which belonged to her grandmother.

Attack on Stamford Hill woman

By Robyn Rosen, December 9, 2009

A strictly Orthodox woman has been attacked after she disrupted an armed burglar in her home in Stamford Hill.

Police were called at 7.48am on Tuesday to reports of a burglar armed with a knife at an address in St Andrew’s Grove.

The burglar was disturbed by a woman, aged in her 50s, who was attacked by the male suspect, during which she was hit in the face and received a bloody nose and cracked tooth.

The suspect then made off with cash and jewellery. Police searched the area with a helicopter but failed to find the suspect.

No arrests have been made.


Bus link is backed by Boris

By Robyn Rosen, December 9, 2009

An intervention by Boris Johnson has prompted a potential U-turn by Transport for London over a direct bus link between Golders Green and Stamford Hill.

In June, TfL announced that it “could not justify the cost of introducing a direct service”. However, it has now agreed to a request from the mayor to reconsider extending the 210 bus route.

A spokesman for Mr Johnson said: “He has listened to voices advocating such a link and, although no commitment has been made, he is keen for TfL to explore all options.”
