Appeal after elderly woman robbed in Bradford

    Police are appealing for information after an elderly woman had her bag snatched in Bradford.

    The incident happened at about 1.00pm on Monday 23 April, when the suspect approached the 83-year-old victim from behind in North Park Road and grabbed her bag, which contained personal possessions and around £140 in cash.

    The suspect is believed to have ran off into Lister Park towards Manningham Lane.

    He is described as being about 5ft 8ins tall, of slim build and is thought to be in his late teens or early 20s.

    He was wearing a red or maroon coloured jacket, dark bottoms and a beanie hat.

    Detective Inspector Ryan Bragg, of Bradford District CID, said: “We are continuing enquiries to trace the suspect in this incident, which left the victim unhurt but shaken.

    “It is believed he may have ran towards Cunliffe Road and we would ask anyone who may have seen this male or anyone who may have information about him to contact Bradford District CID on 101, quoting crime reference 13180192696.”
