This is the horrifying moment that a thug grabbed hold of an elderly woman’s handbag and ran off with it in broad daylight.
The victim, 79, was pulled to the floor with some force as she tried to keep hold of her bag while walking along a residential street in Kettering, Northamptonshire.
She was left with a broken arm as she headed along St Theresa’s Close.
Police have released CCTV footage of the incident which happened between 3.20pm and 3.50pm on Sunday afternoon.
Detective Constable Paul Bates said: ‘Many people will be shocked by the CCTV footage we have released today and rightly so.
‘This lady, like everyone else, should be able to go about her business and feel safe.
‘Her attacker has taken that feeling of safety away from her and it is imperative that he is identified and brought to justice.’
Two men, both 31, have been arrested in connection with this offence and have been released on bail pending further enquiries.
