Elderly lady has bag snatched in Brownhills – take care, folks

Vicarage Road Brownhills, with Costcutter on the corner of Ogley Road; did you see anything suspicious here this afternoon? Imagery from Google Maps.

Very worrying reports reach me that late this afternoon (Friday 5th May 2017) that an elderly lady has had her bag snatched in or near Vicarage Road Brownhills.

The story circulating is that the lady had her bag grabbed and taken near to her home in Vicarage Road after possibly being followed from the local store by a man aged around 19 with grey checked shorts and blonde hair.

This follows a reports of an elderly lady being seriously hurt last week following a bag snatch in Pelsall, and another recently believed to have taken place near Aldridge.

I have been unable to confirm this report with West Midlands Police as yet, but have put in an enquiry for a statement, and will post further should a statement be forthcoming.

Please take care and warn friends and relatives, particlarly the aged and vulnerable – let’s get these bastards caught if we can.

Please, if you have any information, do speak to the cops. If you know who it might be, or if you saw anything at all, please do contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
