Pudsey bag snatch: Police issue e-fit


Police have released an e-fit image of a man they want to identify to speak to regarding an attempted robbery at Pudsey bus station.

As reported last week, the incident – which left the victim upset but physically unharmed – took place at about 9.10pm on Wednesday, 28 October, near the Greggs shop opposite the bus station.

The 36-year-old woman had the shoulder strap of her bag grabbed by a man who let go after members of the public intervened.

PC James Taylor, of Leeds District Neighbourhood Crime Team, said:

“As part of our continued enquiries into this incident we have worked with the victim to produce this e-fit image. Anyone who recognises the man pictured or believes they saw a man matching his description in the area of Pudsey Bus Station around the time of the offence is asked to call Leeds District Neighbourhood Crime Team via 101.”

The suspect is described as white, 6ft tall and of medium build, slightly overweight with what she described as ‘bad skin’ and a wide nose.

He was wearing a checked jumper with a diamond shape pattern and dark thick long coat. The man apparently spoke with a Yorkshire accent and smelt of alcohol.
