An elderly woman has given a thief more than he bargained for when she beat him off with her crutches as he stole her pension.
The thief knocked on the 81-year-old's door at around 1:30pm on Friday 22nd February.
Thinking it was her next-door neighbour she opened to door only to be pushed aside as the man barged through to rummage through her belongings in the living room.
£110 cash was stolen after he had been hit over the head by the elderly woman with her crutches.
The offender is described as standing 6ft tall, clean-shaven, in his early 20s and of average build, with a very pale complexion and short shiny wavy black hair.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Solihull Police.
