"I was wondering if you could but this up for disscusion on your Blog site appealing for any witnesses. I know plenty of people read your site and and any help finding this scumbag would be great.
On Friday morning around 11.40 my Wife was assaulted and had her handbag snatched in the alley between Newington juniors and Infant schools as she was going to work the police are involved and have taken statements unfortunately she didn't get a good look at his face but remembers he was wearing a black and white jumper and darkish jeans and trainers. He then ran up the alley in direction of the railway but there are loads of ways he could of gone!
I was wondering if you could put something on your blog site appealing for any witnesses the handbag is black and a shiny black purse, two debit cards and loyalty cards for various shops and household keys with two keyrings on a Samsung D500 mobile phone and a small black and white umbrella.
She has received a broken cheekbone which needs to be seen by a specialist at Canterbury Hospital on Friday and is in shock about the event.
Any help would be appreciated."
Ed: What an awful experience for her. Very happy to help Bob and I hope your wife makes a speedy recovery.
