Witness Appeal After Elderly Woman's Handbag Stolen in Portsmouth

Published: 11th June 2018 19:44

Police are appealing for witnesses after an 85-year-old woman had her handbag stolen in broad daylight on Saturday (9 June).

At about 1.30pm the victim was waiting to enter an address in Laburnum Grove when somebody tapped her on the shoulder. As she turned around, her handbag was taken and she saw a man running away. 

No violence or force was used, however the victim was understandably shaken by the incident.

The handbag was later returned to her, however her purse containing a bank card, a bus pass and cash, was missing. 

Police say they would like to hear from anyone who witnessed this incident and in particular the driver of a white van who stopped to help the victim. 

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting 44180214742
