Police are appealing for information following the theft of a shopping bag from a woman on a mobility scooter in Old Barn Court, Northampton.

The theft occurred at some time between 10.30am and 10.50am last Saturday (14 April).

The woman was returning to her home from a shopping trip to the Weston Favell centre and was riding along a footpath behind three-storey houses in Old Barn Court.

A man ran up behind her and, as he passed, he grabbed her black fabric shopping bag off the handlebars of her scooter.

The offender ran off in the direction of South Priors Court. He is described as white, about 6ft tall with short hair and aged in his mid-twenties to early-thirties.
