POLICE believe a teenage mugger prowling the streets of Birkby has struck again.
The same youth is thought to be responsible for a spate of handbag snatches in the area and attacked another woman just after 9pm last night.
She was walking down Halifax Old Road when the robber approached her from behind and grabbed her bag.
She bravely clung on and he dragged her to the ground before managing to wrench the bag from her grasp and running away.
He is a dark-skinned African-Caribbean teenager who spoke with a Jamaican accent.
He is aged 17 or 18, 5ft 6ins and slim.
He was wearing a light-coloured hooded top and blue jeans.
Anyone with information should contact detectives on 01484 436685 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
