A woman stole a handbag from a 91-year-old during a Witham burglary.

The woman entered the home of the elderly woman in Maldon Road, at around 2.35pm last Thursday via an insecure rear door. 

She grabbed a handbag and said "have a nice day” to the homeowner, who was in the house at the time, before running off.

The woman is thought to have had pink in her hair.

An attempt is believed to have been made to withdraw money from the 91-year-old's bank account at cash machines in Kelvedon and Colchester later that day by a man wearing a green jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dc Chris Rhodes at Braintree CID on 101 or Criemstoppers on 0800 555 111
