Brackley news: Attempted bag snatch

Have your say

POLICE have appealed for witnesses to an attempted robbery in Brackley on Monday morning this week.

In an appeal released on Friday, Northants Police said a 23-year-old woman was walking to work past the garages and scout hut between Beaumont Crescent and Spencer Gardens at around 7.30am when a man cycled towards her.

The man tried to snatch the woman’s handbag, but she held on and the would-be robber left empty-handed. The white man was about 5ft 6ins tall, aged between 25 and 35, and of average build.

He was wearing jeans, a dark grey hooded top, black woolly gloves and a black scarf. The mountain bike he was riding was silver with a slim frame. Anyone with information on the attempted robbery should contact Northants Police on 03000 111222 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
