A WOMAN was robbed after drawing money out from a cash machine in Portsmouth.

The victim, a 42-year-old woman, had been to Commercial Road to take out money from her bank.

She walked along Arundel Road and into Holbrook Road before entering an underpass, where she was pushed into a wall and her handbag taken from her.

The victim suffered a grazed chin during the incident, which happened between 1.30pm and 2pm on Thursday.

Police are looking for a white man in his late teens, who was seen wearing a black hoodie with a 2in grey stripe down the sides, and blue or black jogging bottoms and dark trainers.

There may have been a second man involved, wearing dark clothes.

Anyone with information should call 101.
