A boy approached her and demanded she hand over her phone. When she refused, he grabbed the buggy, at which point she moved between him and her son.

He pushed the woman causing her to hit her head against the wall. He then made off towards Carnegie Street.

The victim suffered a large bump to the head and a graze to her hand.
