The handbag has since been recovered. Enquiries are on going CCTV is being examined from the shop and surrounding areas and the scene was forensically examined.

Thankfully incidents such as this are rare and we are working hard to trace the offenders responsible. I would urge anyone who has any information about this incident, especially anyone who was in the area at the time, who may have seen a man fitting this description, to come forward. I'd ask anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident to get in contact; maybe you saw a man in the area acting suspiciously or running away from the scene holding a handbag? Any information could assist with our enquiries."
