A woman was robbed by a man wearing a Scream-style mask.

Some time between 10.30pm and 11.30pm last night (Thursday, November 6) the woman, 25, was walking along Abington Avenue, Northampton, from the direction of Kettering Road.

She was dragged into an alleyway between Holly Road and East Park Parade by a man wearing black clothing and a black and white Halloween face covering – believed to be a Scream-style mask.

The offender stole the victim’s gold iPhone 5 and pulled her bag off her shoulder, which contained an Acer laptop and a red wallet.

She was then pushed backwards so she banged her head against the wall, which caused slight bruising.

The offender ran off up the alleyway towards Abington Grove.

Witnesses or anyone with information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
