Handbag stolen from woman in Lowestoft

A handbag was snatched from the front basket of a pedal cycle being pushed by a 41-year-old woman as she walked along a Lowestoft road.

The woman was in Normanston Drive at about 5.15pm on Thursday when she was approached by three males – including one about 15 or 16 years old, 5ft 10in, with ginger hair and wearing black trousers and one with dark hair – who grabbed the bag from the basket and made off.

Police then received a call from a householder in Evergreen Road who found the bag in their back garden. A pink purse containing cash and cards were missing from it. Anyone with information call police on 101.
