Police are hunting two men after two women were attacked while walking alone in Cardiff.
Both were punched and one was threatened with a knife before handbags were snatched and the men escaped on bicycles.
The assaults happened in the Roath area on Monday and Tuesday night.
"Such violence will not be tolerated and to target lone women in this way is particularly cowardly," a spokesperson for South Wales Police said.
