Woman on mobility scooter robbed


14 Aug 2019

Can you help us find a suspect who allegedly stole a 71-year-old woman’s handbag from her while she was on her mobility scooter.

It happened outside the Aldi supermarket on Preston Road in Hull around 9am on Sunday 21 July.

It was reported that a man on a bicycle wearing a dark jacket rode up to the victim and stole the handbag, which was hanging off the scooter’s handlebars. The woman tried to pull her handbag back but the suspect managed to ride away with it towards the direction of Marfleet Lane.

The bag contained money, a bank card, and two rings. The woman sustained a small cut to her hand.

We have had a number of names suggested to us so far about the suspect, but are asking for anyone who might have more information or who might have been driving nearby and caught the suspect on a dashcam to contact us.
