A 12-YEAR-OLD girl was punched in the face by a bag snatch robber inside a Sainsbury’s supermarket.
The yob tried to steal the girl’s handbag before fleeing empty-handed from the store in Chesham, Bucks, on Saturday, November 3.
Thames Valley Police has now released a picture of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident.
A spokesman for the force said: “A 12-year-old girl and a friend were queuing to pay for items in Sainsbury’s in Elgiva Lane, Chesham, Bucks.
“Whilst waiting in the queue, they were approached by a man who tried to take her purse.
“She stepped back from him so that he was unable to reach it. The man then punched her in the face.
“A member of the public stepped in between them and the two friends then left the shop. The victim was not injured and nothing was stolen during the incident.”
