Muggers strike in Norwich street

A 27-year-old woman had her handbag snatched by two men as she walked in Magdalen Road close to the junction with Waterloo Road in north Norwich, at around 2.30am yesterday.

The victim suddenly felt her hair being pulled from behind and a pull on her handbag which was on her right shoulder.

She fell to the floor and two men escaped with her beige H&M bag containing various personal and financial items.

She believes she had seen the two men walking ahead of her prior to the incident but they had disappeared into Albany Road.

Anyone with information should call Det Con John Waterman at Bethel Street CID on 0845 456 4567 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
