The girl noticed her items were missing from her pocket shortly after a teenage boy pushed into her in an alleyway in Willis Way, Towcester.

Between 12.30pm and 12.45pm on Sunday October 9 she was walking her dog down the alleyway towards the recreation field when a loud bang startled the dog.

As she went to attend to the dog, the boy barged into her, knocking her against the fence, and then ran off.
