Police appeal after woman robbed in Bradford


Police are appealing for information following a robbery in Bradford.

At about 10.25pm on Wednesday, August 6, a 36-year-old woman was walking along Tumbling Hill Street, Bradford, when she was approached by two men who made demands for her property.

There was an altercation between the victim and one of the men, who took her handbag and phone from her.

Both men then ran off towards Thornton Road, where it is believed they turned left.

The woman was shaken, but was not injured.

One suspect was described as white, about 5ft 7 ins tall and is believed to be in his mid-twenties. He had short blond hair and was wearing a dark red t-shirt and dark jeans.

The other was also white and slightly smaller. He is believed to be in his late teens or early twenties and had brown, slightly longer hair with a side parting to the left. He was wearing a grey long sleeved top, which was possibly hooded and dark trousers.

Both men spoke with local accents.

Detective Inspector Alan Flynn, of Bradford District CID, said: “We would like to appeal to anyone who might have seen these two men, either in the time leading up to the incident or shortly afterwards.

“This appears to have been an isolated attack, but reassurance patrols are being carried out in the area and will speak to residents about any concerns they might have.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC 3685 Bolton on Bradford District CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
