Information is being sought after a woman in her 80s had her purse stolen in a Sudbury shop.

The incident happened in a stationary store in North Street when a female approached and stood close to an 86-year-old woman.

The 86-year-old asked if she should “move out of the way” and the woman, who had taken the purse, then quickly moved away.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to the theft, which happened between 10.30am and 11.30am on Wednesday, October 2.

The offender is described as a white woman who was dressed in smart clothing.
