Police are appealing for information after a woman was the victim of an attempted robbery in Morecambe last month.
At around 6.30pm on the 18th December, the 48-year-old woman was walking along Back Marine Road on her way home from work when she was approached by a man who tried to grab her bag from her shoulder
When se fell down, the man then ran from the scene empty handed. He has been described as white, around five feet ten inches tall and of slim build with dark hair. He was wearing dark, ‘scruffy’ clothing.
PC James Martin said; “Fortunately, the lady was not seriously injured but was understandably left shaken by what happened and so I would urge anyone who has any information that they think might help to come forward.”
