A woman in her 90s has been left with a broken arm after she was targeted in an attempted bag-snatch.
The victim was in the Rowland Hill shopping centre in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, when the attempt took place, West Mercia Police said.
A man approached her and then pushed past her, knocking her down, as he tried to take the bag.
"No items were taken from the bag but the woman suffered a cracked bone in her arm," police said.
Details of the incident, which happened on Thursday afternoon, have only just been released.
