Detectives appeal for information after Runcorn handbag snatch
A RUNCORN woman had her bag snatched as she walked over a link bridge from Hallwood Park to Halton Lea. Detectives today released an e-fit of a suspect they are keen to talk to. Det Con Mark Naylor said:”Cheshire Police are appealing for anyone with any knowledge of this cowardly act, or any ideas as to the identity of the suspect. “The theft has left the victim shaken and feeling vulnerable about leaving the house after dark.” The victim, in her 50s, was heading to Trident Retail Park when a male offender ran up behind her and snatched her handbag. It contained personal belongs including her mobile phone and purse. The thief ran off towards Hallwood Park at around 6.40pm, on Sunday, October 6. He is is described as a tall, white male, with short dark hair, wearing black top, dark pants and of skinny build.
