Did you see the tattooed woman?
8:10am Saturday 14th September 2013 in News
POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a woman tried to snatch a purse at the Orbital Retail Park in North Swindon.
A 16-year-old girl was walking from the pond at the rear of Asda toward the bus lane when a woman approached her and tried to grab her wallet from her shopping bag. The girl managed to stop her and the woman ran away towards Abbey Meads.
The offender is white, about 40 years old, with very wrinkled skin which made her appear older than she possibly was.
She is about 5ft 10ins tall, of slim build, with brown eyebrows and a distinctive part missing on the right eyebrow. She had a noticeable tattoo on the left hand in a diagonal tribal style that stretched from the wrist to the left thumb.
She was wearing a black shiny hooded top with the hood up, black ‘DONNAY’ jogging bottoms and dirty grey trainers with holes in them.
Police would like help from the North Swindon community to try and identify the offender.
If you think you know who this may be call 101 and speak to DC Mark Harris 1268 about incident number 86761, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
