Two teenagers on a bike snatched a handbag from a woman in Redmile Walk as she headed home from the shops yesterday.
Police are appealing for information following the incident at around 4.45pm on Wednesday, September 18.
The victim was walking home from the Costcutter shop down an alley that leads from Hornsby Road to Redmile Walk when two youths on one pushbike rode past her and grabbed the brown leather handbag from her shoulder.
The bag did not contain anything of value.
The offenders were on a red bike, possibly a BMX and are thought to be aged around 16 to 18.
One wore a blue hoodie with white tracksuit bottoms and white trainers. The other wore a white hoodie with black tracksuit bottoms and white trainers.
Anyone with information about the incident, or potential offenders, is urged to contact PC 1364 Jonathan Smyth via the 101 number.
