A THIEF fled with £300 after snatching it from a man’s hand.

The victim, 40, was standing in the car park at Tesco Express in London Road, North End, Portsmouth when the theft happened between 9.40am and 9.50am last Thursday. The suspect then got into the passenger seat of a white Toyota Avensis, which was driven off towards Cosham by another man.

Detective Constable James Garrett said: ‘There are likely to be several witnesses. The main suspect was wearing a green woolly hat, which we believe some people would have noticed on a summer’s day.’ Call 101.
