A WOMAN was punched in the face by a female robber.
The mugger then screeched off in a car.
The 22-year-old victim was listening to music on headphones while walking on Park Avenue in Springwood at 7.50pm last night when she felt someone touch her right arm.
The hand then grabbed her clutch bag and when the victim tried to get it back she was punched in the face.
The attacker grabbed her bag and ran around a corner.
The victim then heard a car screech away.
The mugger is white and tall.
Police want anyone who saw the mugger in the area to contact them urgently.
Det Con Russ Conlon, of Kirklees CID intelligence unit, said: “Did anyone see this woman hanging around the area?
“Most importantly, does anyone remember the kind of car she was in?’’
