Have your say

THREE teenagers came away empty-handed after trying to snatch a 19-year-old woman’s bag.

She was in a field near College Lane, in Chichester, at 1.30pm on Thursday January 26 when boys – who were white, around 16 years old and wearing hoodies – demanded her backpack and pushed her over. They ran off into Spitalfield Lane when she resisted, leaving her with a bruised wrist and a torn muscle. Call 101.
