Widnes woman, 38, knocked to the ground and robbed
A WOMAN was knocked to the ground by two men and robbed as she walked along a path in Widnes.
Detectives today appealed for witnesses.
The 38-year-old woman was near Hough Green railway station when she was approached by two male offenders riding bikes.
They barged into her, knocking her to the ground and then stole her bag.
The victim sustained a small graze to her elbow as a result of the incident but did not require hospital treatment.
DC Neal Davison said: "We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident to come forward. It took place in the afternoon when it was still light and we would urge anyone who may have been in that area around that time and has seen anything significant to contact us.
"We are also appealing to anyone who may have seen the offenders cycling off from the scene to come forward − even the smallest amount of information can be useful when piecing together a case."
The mugging happened at around 3.30pm on Thursday, September 28.
Both offenders were wearing dark clothing − hooded tops and trainers.
Anyone with any information is urged to call Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 650 of 26 September or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
