Two men have been released on bail following a robbery which left an elderly woman with a suspected hip injury.
The woman, who is in her 70s, was in her Golf Green Road, Jaywick, at around 2.30pm yesterday, when her bag was snatched.
During the robbery, she was knocked to the ground and subsequently taken to hospital with a suspected fracture hip.
Two men, both aged 20 and from Clacton, were later arrested in connection with the incident.
Both have been bailed until January 29 pending further enquiries.
Officers are appealing for witnesses to the robbery and are trying to locate the woman’s bag which is cream-coloured and made of woven material.
Witnesses or anyone with information should call Det Con Lee Winfield at Clacton CID on 101.
