A woman was robbed of her bus pass and struck on the back of her head in Northampton.

The incident happened on Monday, February 5 at about 6.45am, in St. Katherine’s Street when a woman was walking to the bus station via the small park area between St. Katherine’s Street and the Park Inn Hotel.

A pair of men approached her and asked for a cigarette to which she declined and walked away.

A few seconds later she felt a sharp blow to the back of her head and upon turning around, she saw one of the men slash at her with a sharp object.

They then stole items from her including cash and her bus ticket. The woman sustained concussion, has a bruised cheekbone and scratches to her face.
