A woman had her mobile phone stolen in Kettering Road, Northampton, as she walked home after a night out.

Sometime between 2.45am and 3.15am, on Monday (April 28) the woman was walking down Kettering Road, near Alternative Art, when she noticed a man approaching quickly from behind.

As she stepped aside to let him pass, he grabbed her top and said ‘give me your stuff’. The victim refused but he demanded again in a threatening manner and she handed over her iPhone.

The offender is described as white, aged in his late 20s to early 30s, with short dark brown hair. He was wearing a dark-coloured jacket and blue jeans and he spoke with a local accent.
