Cyclist snatches handbag from car
A cyclist snatched a bag from a woman's car as she was about to drive off.
The 72-year-old driver was parked on Francis Street with the engine running when a man on a bicycle opened the front passenger door and grabbed her bag at around 2.40pm on Friday October 12.
The thief made off with the bag but was chased by a member of the public onto Freetown Way.
After throwing his black mountain bike at his pursuer, the cyclist dropped the handbag and ran off, heading behind the Travel Lodge on Pryme Street.
