A 28-year-old mother and her child were targeted by a woman who assaulted and stole from them as they walked through Bletchley.

At 11.45am on Friday, April 4, a woman was walking with her two children towards the shops on Queensway, at the junction between Brooklands Road and Findlay Way.

But as they crossed the road a woman barged into the victim, causing the victim to fall into the wall along with her young son.

When the victim went to comfort her son she noticed her purse, which was on the top of the pushchair, was missing.

The purse had been covered by the rain mac of the pushchair so could not have been seen by a passerby.

Both the mother and her son sustained grazes and bruising to their faces.

The offender is described as white female with a lot of fake tan, 5ft 6ins in height, aged in her early twenties with black hair tied up, wearing navy blue hooded jumper, black trousers and black flat shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Laura Jones via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.
