A woman in her 90s was left shaken after a teenager ran off with her bag which contained more than £100. The woman had just reached the top of some steps at the end of an alleyway in West Park, Wadebridge, between 2.25pm and 2.35pm on Wednesday, when a teenage boy ran up behind her. He grabbed her handbag and then ran off down a bridle way in the direction of Egloshayle Church. Devon and Cornwall Police said the victim was not injured but was "shaken up". The offender was described aged 14-18 years, medium build and wearing dark clothing.
