What empathy-deletion looks like: Shocking moment ‘knife-wielding’ mugger steals elderly woman’s bag with £100 inside in broad daylight attack outside health centre after she went to pick up her prescription

This is the shocking moment an elderly woman is mugged by a thief claiming to be wielding a knife in broad daylight.

The 71-year-old victim was on her way to Frankley Health Centre, near Birmingham, yesterday afternoon to collect a prescription when she was approached by a man who grabbed her bag.

The footage, taken from a security camera outside the health centre has since been uploaded to Facebook in the hope of finding the person responsible.

n the video, the victim can be seen walking ahead of the mugger. They then rush alongside her and start trying to wrestle her handbag off her shoulder.

A tussle for the bag ensues before the thief yanks it off her and brazenly walks off in the opposite direction.

The victim’s son, who didn’t want to be named, told MailOnline his mother lost £100 in cash as well as her credit cards and her house keys.

He said: ‘She’s very scared after what happened and she’s dealing with it the best she can.

‘It’s shocking that someone could do that to a 71-year-old lady.’

He added: ‘She walked into the health centre and they were really helpful they called the police and they called me. They also helped her cancel all her cards.

‘I’ve lived in Frankley for all 34 years of my life and it’s shocking that this can happen here.’

In a statement, West Midland Police said: ‘We’re investigating after a woman was robbed in Birmingham yesterday (04 April).
