A woman was tripped up by another woman who tried to steal her handbag.

At about midday on Wednesday 15 January 2014, a 19-year-old woman was walking along Wilbraham Road in Chorlton, when the offender stuck out her leg and tried to trip her over.

While the woman was unbalanced the offender punched her in the head then grabbed hold of her handbag.

Following a brief struggle she walked off empty handed when a passer-by approached.

The offender is described as black, 5ft 5in tall, of chubby build and about 30 years old. She had short dark hair that was tied up in a ponytail and is described as having a squint or being cross eyed.

Detective Constable Andy Willetts, said: “Despite a concerted effort by this nasty offender, the victim has managed to keep hold of her personal belongings.

“She has been able to provide a detailed description and I would urge anyone who recognises someone from the image we have released to contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 4423, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
