North Shore Handbag Snatch

The North Shore police are investigating a handbag theft which occurred on the 15th of January 2013 at about 12:15pm outside the ASB bank in Link Drive, Glenfield.

The victim was an Asian female who had exited the bank and was about to leave when a male entered her vehicle and took her handbag.

The offender who was described as being a Polynesian in his late 20’s and of thin build fled in a stolen Subaru station wagon registration DAQ311 which was abandoned a short distance away.

Women of Asian descent have been the main victims of handbag snatches in the past so this incident acts as a timely reminder to always remain vigilant.

Anyone taking money to or from banks should take extra care and precautions which will help reduce the risk of similar thefts.
