It happened on Monday (November 12) at around 6pm, when the woman was walking with a friend through the alleyway which leads to Golden Dog Lane.

The pair were approached by a man who grabbed the victim's handbag, which contained her purse before he fled the scene through Colegate car park.

The woman fell to the ground as she tried to hold onto the bag, and sustained minor injuries.

Police officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information concerning it.
