The offender ran off down an alleyway where the unnamed victim’s handbag was later recovered, with cash and a bankcard missing from the contents.

Detective Constable Matthew Stevenson said: ‘I’m sure these images will shock people who will be horrified that someone can target a vulnerable elderly woman in such a way.

‘This is a despicable crime and we need the public’s help to identify the person responsible and bring them to justice.

‘Did you see what happened? Did you see anyone running away from Colonel Stephens Way and discarding items around the time?

‘Or, did you capture anything on your dashcam as you drove through the area?

‘Information, no matter how insignificant you might think it is, might prove crucial to us finding whoever is responsible.’ 

If you can help, please call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5219006773.
