Shock attack on mum

A MAN attempted to mug a woman as she walked with her three-year-old daughter in a pushchair.

The 33-year-old victim was walking along Badgeney Road, March, at just after 1pm on May 9 when she realised the man was walking behind her.

The victim was approaching the Co-op and speeded up her walk but the man approached from behind, put his hand over her mouth and tried to grab her handbag. She managed to scream and he ran off empty handed along Asplin Avenue.

The victim was not seriously injured but was left shocked and shaken.

The offender was described as white, 19 to 20, wearing a grey hooded top with blue trim on the hood and sleeves, grey jogging bottoms with blue trims, and white and blue Nike Air Max trainers.
