Police probe bag snatch

Have your say

A BAG thief struck as a woman walked along a path in Doncaster.

The woman was walking along a path between Town Fields Villas and Town Fields, just off Lawn Avenue around 1pm, when her handbag – containing an expensive iPad computer – was snatched from her. She was not injured.

Police are appealing for information after the theft from the 25-year-old woman on Monday, June 27.

The suspect is described as a black man with a shaven head. He was around 6ft 2ins and stocky. He was wearing a white round neck T-shirt, black shiny baggy shorts similar to basketball shorts, and white trainers. On his left hand he was wearing a chunky gold ring.

Police believe the thief was an opportunist, and are keen to hear from anybody who recognises his description, or who has information that could help the investigation.
