Over the past few weeks there have been a number of incidents in the Clock Towers Shopping Centre, Rugby. Where elderly women have had their handbags stolen when left on top of personal shopping trolleys.

The women have been distracted by two men, one of which has engaged them in conversation, whilst the other removes the handbag and then leaves the scene. The men are both described as being aged between early to mid 20s, having dark hair, slim build, and speaking with a foreign accent.

Safety Tips

Please secure your personal items and handbags whilst out shopping.

Making sure your bag is closed and kept on your person at all times.

Purse bell are available at Rugby Police Station if required.


Thank you
