We are appealing for witnesses and dash cam footage after a woman was robbed in Sheffield last week.

At 6.39am on Wednesday (17 November), the 59-year-old was walking towards a bus stop on Sicey Avenue. While on Willington Road, an unknown offender approached her from behind before spinning her around, hitting her in the face and stealing her bag.

The woman required stitches and suffered eye injuries in the attack.

Investigating Officer, Steve Pickering said: “There was nothing of value in the woman’s bag, however this was a very nasty incident which resulted in a woman being assaulted.

“We are following up lines of enquiry, but as the victim was approached from behind, we are relying on any passing members of the public to come forward with a description of anyone suspicious in the area that morning.

“Please check your dash cam footage if you’re were travelling along Willington Road, there could be something seemingly innocent on there which could help progress our inquiry.”

The investigation number connected to this incident is 14/179009/21. You can report information through 101 or by talking to us through live chat.
