12:19pm Monday 30th December 2013 in Local
A WOMAN aged 78 was injured after she was pushed to the floor by two men during a robbery.
Police this week released details of the offence, which took place at around 11am on December 15, in Greystone Street.
The victim suffered swelling and pain to her face, knee and shoulder during the attack, the men grabbed her handbag and ran off towards Pitfield Street.
Detective Constable Nick Slym, from Dudley CID, said: “This was a completely unacceptable attack against an elderly woman who was minding her own business.
“It happened in broad daylight and I’m sure there would have been other people in the area at the time that may have seen the pair responsible.
The first man is described as white, aged between 19 and 20, slim and around five-feet-nine. He was wearing black clothing and a hood over his head.
The other man was also white and of a similar age, height and build. He was wearing a black woolly hat and a black and white jacket.
Cops are also hunting a man who stole mobile phones from a pair of teenage brothers in Mill Street, Brierley Hill, at around 7pm on December 14.
The offender is described as white, aged between 20 and 25, five-feet-ten, of thin build, short black hair, scars on his face from spots and a thin moustache. He was wearing dark clothing and had a hood or hat over his head, he claimed to be carrying a knife.
Anyone with information on either offence should contact Dc Slym on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
