A thief searched the pockets of a partially sighted man who had a white cane before stealing £200 in an incident in Hull.
The 55-year-old victim, who was also wearing a high-visibility jacket, had just visited a cash machine when he was approached by the woman at the junction of Midland Street and Anlaby Road when the woman approached him.
She asked him for money, but when he refused she rummaged through his pockets and took the cash before escaping.
The woman was believed to be wearing dark trousers and a black coat with a white top underneath and was on a pedal cycle. The incident happened on the afternoon of May 3.
Detective Chief Inspector Darren Webb said: “It would appear that the offender targeted the victim after seeing him use the cash machine. It is despicable that anyone could commit such a crime and target a partially sighted person in this way."
