The victim, a woman in her 20s, was walking home from work when she was attacked outside the Co-op funeral service on Bispham Road.


Two offenders tried to snatch her rucksack causing her to fall to the floor. She suffered some minor injuries but managed to make off and nothing was stolen.


The offenders are described as a young white woman wearing a purple jacket and a white man around 30 years old, slim build, tall, short brown hair wearing gloves and a black jacket.


The incident happened at about 5pm on November 24.
