92yo woman robbed by heartless thief

A MAN has been charged after a 92-year-old woman was robbed of her handbag at Fairfield last week.

About 5pm (Friday 28 August 2015), the woman left a registered club on Anzac Avenue and walked to the intersection of Dale Street.

It is alleged a man approached her and grabbed the woman’s handbag from under her arm and ran from the scene.


The woman screamed and was assisted by a passer-by. She was not injured.

The bag contained an amount of cash and personal items.

About midday yesterday (Monday 31 August 2015), a 31-year-old man was arrested and charged with steal from person.

He was refused bail and appeared in Fairfield Local Court yesterday. He was again refused bail and has been remanded in custody until his next appearance on Tuesday 8 September 2015
