Church organist widow was 'attacked in street'

The widow of a church organist who was murdered in a street attack on Christmas Eve has described how she was the subject of a violent mugging as she prepared for the trial of her husband's killers.

A man was jailed for life last month for the murder of lay-preacher Alan Greaves, who died after he was attacked near his home in Sheffield last year.

His widow Maureen Greaves, 64, has revealed she was punched in the face in the street in June by a woman who tried to take her handbag.

"It was very frightening. The worst thing was it made me imagine Alan being attacked and what he was feeling," Mrs Greaves told the Sheffield Star newspaper.

South Yorkshire Police said a 24-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assault and attempted robbery.
