Police Seek Would-Be Handbag Snatchers

Police are appealing for information after a group of males tried to snatch two women’s handbags.

The ladies were walking along Bellevue Terrace, Lancaster, at around 7.50pm on Saturday 14th November when they were approached from behind by three males.

The group then started to pull at the women’s handbags but ran away after the pair screamed.

The offenders were described as wearing dark hooded tops. One was around 5ft 8 and had dark curly hair coming out from underneath his hood.

• Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Rachel Killinger at Lancaster CID on 01524 63333.
