Did you witness a handbag theft in Kidderminster?

At around 2pm on Thursday (20 December) a woman returned to her car, which was parked on Bromsgrove Street, and placed a black handbag on the front passenger seat and the shopping in the footwell. After she closed the door and walked  to the driver's door, she saw a man open her passenger door, reach in and take her handbag from the front seat. The man then ran off towards Prospect Hill and past the mini roundabout.
