Shocking CCTV of the moment a 75-year-old woman was dragged into an alleyway and robbed in a Leicestershire street has been released by police.
The lady was walking with friends along Sherrard Street, Melton Mowbray, when the man grabbed her from behind, dragging her to the ground and into a nearby alleyway.
Detectives say the woman escaped serious injury in the attack - which happened just three days before Christmas - but her phone, personal bank cards and keys were taken.
Anyone with information on the man seen in the CCTV is urged to call police on 101.
