5:39pm Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
A would-be bag snatcher was left red-faced after his victim squirted him with a defence spray. Now police are appealing for anyone who knows the man to get in touch. The spray can last on skin for up to one week. The attack happened at 10pm last night as the woman was walking alone in Carr House Gate at Wyke. A man approached her and tried to steal her handbag but she managed to spray him in the face.
The man is white, 5ft 7in tall, slim build, late teens to early 20s, with short dark hair, distinctive thin manicured eyebrows, clean shaven and wearing a blue short sleeved top and jeans. Call Tong & Wyke police team on (01274) 376512, dial the non-emergency number 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
