A woman had her iPhone and shopping stolen as she was walking on a redway in Caldecotte.

The 28-year-old tried to fight the two men off after she got off a bus close to Caldecotte Lane around 5.25pm on Friday. They tried to grab her shopping bags but she resisted.

She was then pushed over before the men stole her shopping bags and iPhone. She also heard one of the men say the other had a knife.

The first man is around 5ft 9in tall, slim, and wearing a grey hooded top, dark blue jeans and white trainers.

The other man is about 5ft 6in tall, slim, wearing a navy hooded top with dark coloured jogging bottoms and white trainers.

The victim, who did not see the offenders’ faces, suffered slight scratches to her face, but did not need to go to hospital.

One of the woman’s bags and her iPhone were later recovered.

Any witnesses can call 101 or Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
