Have your say

The crutch thief being sought by police in Whitechapel.

A police hunt is under way after a disabled woman was pushed to the ground by a cruel thug - who stole her CRUTCH. Detectives have issued CCTV footage of a man they want to speak to in connection with the shocking robbery - which also saw the woman lose her handbag. A man approached the victim, in her 30s, as she was walking in Whitechapel, east London with a crutch, and asked her for directions to an off licence. He walked alongside her - and when they turned down an alleyway, he shoved her to the ground, stole her crutch and handbag, and ran off.
