Do you recognise this man?

We’d like to speak to him in connection with a theft of a handbag near the College House School on Cator Lane, Chilwell, which happened at about 2.20pm on Friday 26 May 2017.

A woman was parked near the school when two males approached her vehicle and opened the door before taking her dark blue leather handbag from the front passenger seat. It contained her purse and bank cards.

The victim chased after the thieves but they split up and went separate ways.

One of the thieves is described as a black male who was wearing a baseball cap, jeans, a white T-shirt and a sleeveless jacket. He got on a orange number 36 service bus.

The other offender, a white male who was wearing casual clothing, made off along College Road.

If you recognise the man pictured or think you can help, please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 539 of 26 May 2017.
