Police said one of the women had a clipboard and asked the man to sign a charitable petition. After he signed it, she pulled him in for a hug and they left the place.

A few minutes later, the man discovered that his Rolex watch was missing, added detectives.

Police said this incident has been linked to a number of similar Rolex thefts in the area.

Detective Sergeant Karen Penn, from Dorset Police’s Priority Crime Team, said: “As part of our investigation, we have been given pictures of the female suspects and the car they were seen getting into after the incident.

“I appreciate that the pictures are not in good quality, but I hope they can help jog someone’s memory and I would encourage anyone with information to contact us.
