As the victim was walking along the road, a man approached her and pushed her in the chest. As she fell backwards, a second man grabbed her from behind.
The first man threatened to stab the woman if she did not hand over all her money. He then searched her and removed a small quantity of cash from her pocket and tried snatching her watch. The woman managed to fight the offenders off and they fled towards Park Way and Kings Road.
