TWO men were arrested after a woman had her handbag snatched in the Tesco car park in Thornbury last night.

The 40-year-old woman was walking across the car park on Wednesday, November 7 at around 8pm when a dark-coloured people carrier drove past her. The occupant grabbed her bag, pulling her to the ground before making off in the vehicle.

She was not seriously hurt.

Officers later arrested two men aged 30 and 31. They are still in custody.

Witnesses or anyone with information which could help police should contact officers on, call 101 or phone the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
