He drove off before returning to steal her phone and handbag.

The man was Asian in appearance, in his late 20s or early 30s, with dark hair. He was clean shaven, just under 6ft tall and of medium build.

He wore dark clothing, including a polo shirt with a jumper or cardigan on top.

Anyone with any information should call the police on 101, quoting incident number 000797-11022014.
