Police are making another appeal for information after a robbery in Newcastle.

At 11:45pm on Saturday, December 12 (2015), two males approached a woman who was walking in Bath Lane, just off Westgate Road, and stole her handbag.

One of the males punched the 36-year-old victim in the face before making off with the bag.

Enquiries are ongoing into the incident and police are releasing CCTV images of two males they want to identify and speak to in connection with the theft.

The images were initially released to the public in January without success.

Officers are re-issuing the images and believe the two males could be from the Alnwick or Ashington areas of Northumberland and enquiries to locate them are ongoing.

Anyone who recognises them is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference number

1277 12/12/15
