A WOMAN was robbed as she walked along a Wisbech passageway on January 21.

The 51 year old was walking along the passageway next to the Westgate department store, which leads from Little Church Street to Falcon Road, at 10am when a man approached her and demanded money.

He then grabbed the victim's handbag, causing minor injuries in the struggle.

The attacker is described as white, skinny, in his late 20's around 5'10" tall with light brown hair. He was wearing a black hoody with the hood up, blue jeans and white trainers.

Detective Constable Simon Rust, investigating, said: "We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area at the time.

"We would also like to speak to anyone who thinks they may recognise this description of the attacker."
