Police are appealing for information after a woman had her mobile phone and purse stolen from her as she walked her dogs in Whitworth at the weekend.

The 20-year-old woman was walking the dogs on a grassed area next to Gandy Lane, off Market Street, around 11-30pm on Friday when she was approached from behind by a man.

He grabbed at her hair and demanded she hand over her handbag and, as she turned round, the man grabbed at the bag and pulled it from her shoulder before emptying its contents and taking her purse and Samsung Galaxy phone before running away.
