Police want to speak to this man in connection with a street robbery in Baker Street, Wellingborough.

Between 8am and 8.20am on Friday, August 31, a 61-year-old woman was walking from Poplar Street along Baker Street in the direction of Perkins Court.

She was pushing a trolley and was carrying her handbag loosely over her shoulder when she noticed a man cross the road towards her.

Feeling uneasy, she then looked to cross to the other side of the road but, when in the middle of the road, the man asked for her handbag.

The woman handed over the bag to the man who then made off in the direction of Poplar Street.

Witnesses to this incident, or anyone with information about it, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
