Woman's Tooth Broken In Street Attack

A masked robber pushed a woman to the ground as he took more than 300 from her in a street struggle in Coventry.

The victim was out collecting insurance money when she was set upon in Lauderdale avenue, Holbrooks at 7.15pm on Monday.

A man approached her from behind and put his arm around her neck.

In a husky voice, with a local accent, he told her to give him money. A struggle broke out during which the woman fell to the floor. She suffered a broken tooth and cuts to her face.

The man ran off with a red pencil case, which has a logo with multi-coloured spiders on it, which contained 300.

He is 5ft 6ins and wore a black balaclava, a black puffa jacket, black tracksuit bottoms and black gloves.

Witnesses should call 024 7653 9020.
