TWO masked men grabbed a woman’s bag and forced her to hand over her mobile phone before pushing her to the ground in a street robbery in north Nottinghamshire.
They struck as the 21-year-old victim was walking along the A60, near the entrance to Langold Adventure Park at around 9.50pm on Sunday
The muggers fled to a grey car and drive off in the direction of Carlton-in-Lindrick.
Her bag was cream and had a distinctive crown design on the front. It also had the letter J etched into it and a cracked mirror sewn inside.
The handle was ripped from the bag - containing keys, letters, a purse and small teddy bear said to be of ‘enormous sentimental value’ - when it was taken from the woman.
The toy is cream, 20cm in height, with a purple nose and purple paw. A yellow and purple tag was still attached to it.
PC Ruth Walker, who is investigating, said: “She was incredibly shaken by what happened and is desperate to get her property back.
“Don’t let these cowards get away with it – call the police and tell us what you know so that we can bring these people to justice.”
