A WOMAN who stole a bright pink suitcase from a building in Bradford is being hunted by police.

The theft happened on August 15, at about 6pm, on Stott Hill, opposite Bradford Cathedral, said a police spokesman.

The woman (pictured) was captured on CCTV. She is described as white, aged about 40, with long brown hair tied in a pony tail. She was wearing a brown hooded coat, light-coloured blouse, black trousers and tan shoes. She was also carrying a blue plastic carrier bag.

Police said the suitcase belonged to someone who was on a trip in Bradford and was taken after they had put it down.

If anyone recognises the woman they can call police on 101.
