Two boys aged as young as eight are being sought by police after a pensioner’s bag was snatched.

Derbyshire Police said it is seeking the public’s help to trace the youngsters after an 81-year-old woman was left “badly shaken” by the incident.

She had just got off a bus in the Sinfin area of Derby at about 5.45pm last Thursday when she felt her handbag being pulled from her shoulder.

She let go of her bag, and turned to see two boys running off along Lynwood Road towards The Chase.

A police spokesman said the boys are described as being aged between eight and nine and were about 4ft 6in.

Both were wearing hooded tops, with their hoods up.

The leather-look pink bag contained a patchwork purse and Samsung mobile phone.

Police said the woman was uninjured but shaken.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting crime number 6270/15, or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
