Two women had their handbags stolen by a man on a bicycle in Corby at the weekend.

Police investigating the two thefts believe they may have been carried out by the same man.

The first happened on Saturday, January 3 at about 5.25pm in Elizabeth Street when a handbag was taken off the handlebars of a woman’s bike.

The suspect was a skinny white man who was wearing a dark hoody and riding a mountain bike. After the theft, he rode away towards Alexandra Road and went through the car park of the Co-op supermarket.

On the following day, another woman had her bag taken by a man on a bicycle in Beanfield Avenue.

He was a slim man, wearing black trousers, a black hooded top and a high-visibility vest.
