A 92-year-old widow was dragged screaming along the ground as she tried desperately to stop a violent robber from snatching her handbag in broad daylight.
The frail elderly woman had just posted a letter and was on her way to the doctor when the hooded man crept up behind her. As she was right outside the surgery he snatched her bag in broad daylight and dragged her to the ground as she desperately tried to hang on to it. After the horrific incident in Hackney, east London, the thief ran off leaving the woman terrified and in pain.
The victim suffered extensive bruising across her body, with the most severe on her ribs and side where she was dragged along the ground. She was also left with a three-inch bruise on her left arm from where the handbag dragged on her arm.
The woman, who recently lost her husband of nearly 70 years, was left distraught and is now terrified to leave her own home. The suspect is described as a black man with short black hair, according to police. He was wearing a blue hooded jacket and dark coloured trousers.
