Police are hunting two men who knocked a woman unconscious as she unloaded her car in West Bromwich.

It happened as the 68-year-old woman unpacked her black Audi car, which was parked under the Premier Inn in High Street, around midday on Wednesday 1 April.

She was approached by a man, who hit her across the head, knocking her unconscious, before he and another man stole an orange DKNY handbag, a laptop and some hand luggage.

The woman was cut on the back of her head and her armed was injured.

Sergeant Wayne Dudley from Sandwell Police said:

This was an unprovoked nasty attack on a vulnerable woman as she was taking her things out of the car boot. Despite checking local CCTV and carrying out witness trawls, we haven’t been able to identify these two men. I am sure someone will know who they are or will have seen something before or shortly after the attack on April 1.
