POLICE are appealing for information after a woman in her 70s was robbed by teens.

The victim reported that she was walking along Cutlers Road, South Woodham Ferrers at some point between 11.50am and 3.35pm on March 8 when two teenage boys stole her bag.

A spokesman said: “The bag was later recovered on the industrial estate.

“Thankfully, the victim was unharmed, but she is understandably shaken by the incident.

“The boys are described as being white and around 13 or 14 years old.

“One wore a pale-coloured hooded jumper with the hood up and the other wore dark clothing and had dark hair.

“Anyone with information about this incident, or doorbell or dashcam footage available to view, is asked to call Maldon's Local Policing Team on 101 and quote the crime reference number 42/37129/20.”
