Witness appeal after robbery in Waterlooville

Press release   •   May 12, 2019 14:03 BST

We are appealing for information after a robbery in Waterlooville on Friday 10 May.

A woman in her 50s was on Puffin Walk at about 12.15pm when her handbag was grabbed from her shoulder from behind.

The force used was enough to cause her to fall to the floor, grazing her knees.

The Ted Baker handbag has a short black strap and contained a blue leather Radley purse with an image of a dog, a pink Zippo lighter and cash.

Did you see a white man wearing a grey hoody acting suspiciously in the area of Robin Gardens / Puffin Walk around the time of this robbery?

If you have any information about this incident, please call 101 quoting 44190160685.

Alternatively you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

In an emergency, call 999.
