A purse was stolen from a shopper in Felixstowe.

The female victim noticed a man and woman standing close by on either side of her, and later realised her shoulder bag felt lighter.

She discovered her black wallet, containing money, bank cards and personal documents, was missing from her bag.

The incident happened in a store on Grange Farm Avenue between 9.50am and 10.05am on Tuesday August 5.

The man was white, with short dark hair, of slight build, around 5ft 10ins tall, and wearing dark trousers and a blue t-shirt with short sleeves.

If you saw anything suspicious or have any information please call PC Neil Partridge at Felixstowe Police Station on 101 with reference FE/14/1291.
