Appeal After Attempted Robbery In Stroud
Police in Stroud are appealing to the public for help in tracing two offenders who tried to rob a woman in the town during the morning of Friday January 12.
The 48 year-old woman, who comes from Stroud, had been walking near the public toilets in Fawkes Place between 10.40am and 10.45am when she was pushed to the floor from behind.
Two men then attempted to grab the woman's handbag but she was able to hang on to it, and the pair ran off towards the town centre.
The woman did not suffer any injuries as a result of the attack.
The two men have been described as white and both were wearing dark trousers and coats. One had a medium build.
Anyone who witnessed the attempted robbery, or who has information about it, is urged to call Stroud police on 0845 090 1234, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 326 of January 12.
