Woman Robbed After Bingo

Why is it that folks are always getting injured in or around the bingo halls these days? Most recently, there was some girl on girl crime as a woman was robbed by another woman. The female snatched her handbag and ran from a UK bingo hall in Great Yarmouth. The victim was 60 years old and left shaken on Sunday night.

She was walking along on her crutches and heading toward her car after bingo. A woman approached her, took her purse and left her on the ground.

The robber ran down an alleyway and it’s there where the bag was later found discarded and missing all the cash that was inside. I sure hope the 60-year-old hadn’t won a jackpot at bingo.

Police are searching for any witnesses to the crime which took place at 9.20pm.

The thief is Caucasian, 5 foot 6 or 7 inches tall, of medium build with shoulder length blonde hair and was seen wearing a 3/4 length coat and black boots.

Investigator DC Kevin Maskell said, “The woman was very shaken by this incident.

“She had been enjoying an evening out and had just loaded her belongings into her car when she was attacked. Her handbag was pulled from her and she was left in a heap on the floor.

“I want to speak to anyone who was in the area and may have witnessed this robbery, or saw the offender before or afterwards.”
