Police are appealing for information after thieves stole a purse belonging to an 87-year-old woman in Cambridge.

The victim only realised she was missing her purse when she received a phone call from her bank about irregular activity on her account.

A police spokesman said: “We believe the victim’s card was used in Asda in the Beehive Centre on February 13 between 1pm and 1.20pm to purchase a Samsung TV worth £459 and household items amounting to £117.50.

“£300 cash was also withdrawn from NatWest in Fitzroy Street at about midday the same day.”

The spokesman said: “We are particularly keen to speak to the three people in the CCTV footage as we believe they will be able to assist with our investigation.”

Anyone with information should contact PCSO Newton on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
