When she took out her phone to call police the man struck it from her hand to the floor, before grabbing her hand.

When the bus arrived at about 2.20pm the man blocked her from getting on it.

At this point another woman stepped in to ask if the victim was OK, before the victim ran after the bus as it started to leave.

A police spokesman said: "The woman who stepped in to help, and anyone else who saw the incident, are asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101."
