Incident Number: 239 of 10 June

We’re appealing for witnesses to a handbag theft which took place in Gloucester at the weekend.

The victim was walking along Ryecroft Street at 12pm on Sunday (10 June) when a man asked her for the time; this is when he grabbed her handbag before running off along Vauxhall Road.

The offender is described as an Asian man of slim build who was around 5ft 6 and wearing an all-black outfit which was made up of a zipped jacket, trousers, trainers and a cap.

He is thought to be around 20-years-old.

It’s believed that other members of the public were around when this happened and they may have information that will help with our enquiries.

If you were in the area at the time or witnessed this please call 101 with incident 239 of 10 June.
