88-year-old woman mugged
Saturday 1st March, 2008

Police are hunting a mugger who pushed an 88-year-old woman to the ground after she got off a bus.

At about 5.55pm yesterday, Friday 29 February 2008, the woman got off a bus on Poolstock Lane, Worsley Mesnes, and walked towards her house on the same road.

As she got to her front door she was grabbed round the throat from behind and she fell to the floor.

The offender then made off with the woman's handbag, which contained a quantity of cash.

The woman was uninjured but left very distressed by her ordeal.

The offender is described as tall and slim.

Officers are now appealing for anyone who saw the incident, or remembers seeing the woman get off the number 631 pub on Poolstock Lane, to call Wigan CID on 0161 856 5307 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
