She had alighted from a bus at Moorefield and was walking through an alley towards Pairc Mhuire when she was approached from behind by a man who grabbed her bag.

He wore navy tracksuit bottoms and a grey hoodie and fled towards Pairc Mhuire and turned up towards Henry Street. The woman received no physical injuries.
