5 years ago
Plucky pensioner, identified only as Eileen, was with her friend Margaret on their way back from a lunch club when they spotted a man peering through a wire fence. The pair, who do not wish to be fully identified, said the man did not move until they both trundled past on their mobility scooters. He then eyed up the contents of Margaret's basket before grabbing Eileen by the arm and reaching for her carrier bag.
