This is the shocking moment a woman in her 90s is dragged to the ground by a handbag-snatching thug.
The elderly victim was mugged as she walked home near the famous Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham.
Sickening CCTV shows the woman walking with a stick along Bromford Gardens in Edgbaston, at 1pm last Thursday.
The thug walks up behind her and hauls her to the ground.
She is thrown to the ground with such force her walking stick goes over her head.
The attacker, who was wearing a flat cap and a grey Adidas tracksuit, then fled with her handbag.
The shocking footage has gone viral after West Midlands Police shared it as they try and find the coward responsible.
A force spokesperson said: ‘We need to speak to him about a nasty robbery on a woman in her early 90s near to Westfield Road in Edgbaston.
‘The pensioner was walking along Bromford Gardens at around 1pm when a man walked up behind her and pulled her bag out of her hands, causing her to fall to the ground.
‘Thankfully, she was not badly hurt, but the suspect ran off with her bag.’
