Police investigating the reported robbery of an elderly woman in Doncaster
earlier this year have released a CCTV still of a man they would like to
speak to as enquiries continue.
At around 3.30pm on Monday 16 July, an 87-year-old woman was walking along
Highfield Road, Doncaster, heading away from the town centre.
It is reported that an unknown man approached the woman from behind and
attempted to pull her necklace from around her neck.
This caused the elderly woman to fall to the floor. She suffered injuries as
a result of the fall.
While the necklace snapped, the suspect was unable to grab it and he ran
from the scene towards Kings Road.
Police believe the man pictured could hold vital information and are
appealing for him, or anyone who witnessed the robbery, to get in touch.
Please call 101 quoting crime reference number 14/104616/18 and ask for
information to be passed to DC Hill at Doncaster Police Station. You can
also ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
