A woman aged 60 had her handbag snatched when she was pushed over at dawn by a youth in Sheffield.

South Yorkshire Police said the woman was targeted on Lowedges Crescent, Lowedges, at 6.45am last Thursday.

She was approached by a white youth, aged around 18 years old, who was riding a BMX bike. When he got close to the victim he pushed her over and grabbed her bag before riding off.

Inspector Ian Stubbs said: “There can’t be many people out on bikes at that time in the morning.”
