Wiltshire Police is appealing for witnesses after a woman was robbed on Crombey Street, close to the pedestrian crossing near Morrisons, Swindon.

Around 4.30pm on Tuesday 18 April 2017, three unknown males grabbed the woman from behind, pulled her to the ground and then stole her bag along with a Samsung tablet and some cash.

The men then ran off along Crombey Street towards Commercial Road.

The males are described as follows:

1. black, of medium build and wearing dark jeans.
2. white, mid-20s, around 5’7″ – 5’8″ tall, of medium build with dark brown, short hair and wearing a dark hoody with a new style Adidas logo.
3. white, early-20s, 5’5″ -5’6″ tall, ginger, spikey, mid-length hair and wearing a red t-shirt with a logo and blue jeans.

The woman received a bruise to her head.

Det Con Wayne Harvey said:  “This happened in broad day-light in a very busy area of town – someone must have seen this happen;  if that was you, please come forward.
“Also, if you saw or heard anything suspicious in this area at this time please contact me.”

If you can help with our enquiries please contact DC Wayne Harvey at Swindon CID on 101 or anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
