A woman in her 50s has been robbed as she walked across a car park in Newmarket.
It happened at about 6pm yesterday at a supermarket car park in Fred Archer Way.
The victim was walking across when she was approached by a man on a BMX bike who attempted to grab her handbag and, in the process of doing so, pulled her to the floor.
The suspect then shouted at the victim to give him her handbag before striking her twice to the head and stealing the bag. He then rode off in the direction of Yellow Brick Road via the pedestrian entrance to the car park.
The woman was left shaken, but her injuries are not thought to be serious.
The suspect is described as a white man in his early 20s, of a slim build and between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 10ins tall. He was wearing a charcoal grey hooded top with the hood up, dark-coloured trousers and dark footwear.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the Bury St Edmunds Priority Crime Team on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
