One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Cambridge: Woman Knocked Out And Robbed
A Police investigation has begun after an 18 year old woman was knocked unconscious and robbed in Cambridge.
The woman, from Cambridge, was walking over Elizabeth Way bridge towards Chesterton between 9pm and 9:30pm on Wednesday (17 April) when she was approached by a man coming in the opposite direction.
The man hit her over the head with an object that is not know, knocking her unconscious.
When she came round she realised her handbag had been taken.
The victim managed to make her way home where paramedics attended and then called police.
Her bag was later found near the scene of the attack in Cutter Ferry Lane.
The attacker is described as a man with dark or tanned skin, aged 25 to 30, slim build and average height.
He was wearing dark clothing, possibly with grey marks on his top.
The victim was treated at hospital and, although not seriously hurt, was shaken and upset by what happened.
DC Peter Rivers, who is investigating, said: "I am appealing for anyone who used the Elizabeth Way Bridge or Cutter Ferry Close at this time to get in touch.
Someone may have seen the victim and attacker following the incident or a man matching this description hanging around in the area beforehand.
Any information, no matter how small it may seem, could be crucial to solving this particularly nasty crime.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Rivers on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
