Shocking video footage, which can be seen below, shows the moment an alleged robber appears to violently snatch a from woman’s handbag in the street, knocking over her child’s pushchair. The incident took place on Darenth Road in Hackney, north-east London, on January 1.
The video shows the thief chasing the victim along a road before the stroller topples over as she struggles to hold on to the bag.
Shomrim released the footage in a bid to trace the alleged thief.
Chaim Kahan, from Stamford Hill Shomrim, said: “The woman is still very shaken and scared to leave her home. The two-year-old girl who was toppled over in the buggy, has since had terrible nightmares, waking up every few minutes, asking if the (man) has already been caught.”
