Caught On Camera: Woman In Wheelchair Targeted

A couple who stole a 71 year-old woman's purse from the bag hanging off the back of her wheelchair have been caught in the act on CCTV.

The woman was shopping in the Rushden branch of Wilkinson in Eaton Walk on Wednesday, January 7, when she had her purse stolen.

Cameras from the store show a woman in a pink jacket take the purse from the back of the wheelchair before passing it on to a man in a dark jacket and a cap.

The theft happened sometime between 1.45pm and 2.15pm.

Officers investigating the case would like to speak to anyone who was in the store at that time and saw the couple, or who knows who they are.

Witnesses, or anyone with any information about this theft, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
