Sunday 14 February 2016, 3:34pm
Thames Valley Police is releasing an E-FIT of a man we want to speak to in connection with a robbery in Milton Keynes.
At around 6.30pm on Wednesday (10/2) a woman in her fifties was getting out of a car outside Gala Bingo, The Point, Milton Keynes.
A man has come up to the victim and pushed her to the ground taking her handbag containing a sum of cash and bank cards.
The woman, who is registered disabled, suffered a broken arm and had to be treated at Milton Keynes General Hospital.
She has since been discharged.
Prior to the incident the male offender also approached another parked car with a female driver inside, and tried to gain access to her car, however the car was locked and the woman told him to go away.
The man is white, 5ft 8-5ft 9ins tall, slim build, wearing a hooded top, with a bomber style jacket over the top. The man is described as having a pale complexion and having a twisted mouth.
Investigating Officer, PC Fred Ruffle, of local CID based at Milton Keynes, said; “This is a cowardly act that has injured a vulnerable lady, who has lost personal belonging and cash.
“We are looking for anyone who witnessed this incident to come forward, particularly the lady in the parked car who was also approached by this offender.
“We would also urge anyone who recognises the description or the man in our E-FIT to also come forward.”
