Detectives in Liverpool are looking to identify the victim of an unreported robbery in Liverpool City Centre last week.
At around 7.30am on Friday 15 July, a woman was walking along Seel Street and Hanover Street when she had her handbag stolen from her.
The victim did not report the incident, which was identified through separate enquiries, and we are keen for her to come forward and speak to detectives.
The victim is described as white, approximately 45-50 years old, of medium build, with shoulder length dark brown hair. She was wearing a white blouse, black trousers and a navy blue scarf/neckerchief and carrying a black handbag which was stolen from her shoulder.
The suspect is described as a black male, around 16 years old, of slim build, with short black hair. He was wearing a black hooded jacket, light grey jeans and black trainers.
Other enquiries are ongoing.
Detective Constable George Easterbrook said: “We would like the victim of this offence to come forward and speak to us, as this would have been a frightening experience, and one we are keen to see end in justice.
“You may be the friend or family member of someone who mentioned being the victim such a robbery last Friday morning, and for whatever reason did not come forward. If so, please tell us what you know, directly or anonymously via Crimestoppers.”
