Police hunt robber who caused pregnant Salford woman to lose her baby

October 16, 2014, 1:16 pm

Police are hunting a man who robbed a pregnant woman in Salford and caused her to lose her baby.

At around 5.45am on Saturday 11 October 2014, the 43-year-old woman was sat at a bus stop on Cromwell Road in Salford.

She was approached and attacked by three teenagers, who stole her handbag.

Sadly, as a result of the attack the woman lost her baby.

A 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with robbery and is due to appear at Manchester and Salford magistrates court on Thursday 16 October 2014.

A second boy, aged 17, has been arrested on suspicion of robbery.

Officers are also trying to track down a third offender, described as white and aged between 16 and 20 years old. He was wearing a black hoody with white stripes down the arms, a black body warmer with a white motif and dark tracksuit bottoms.

Detective Sergeant Roger Smethurst said: “This is a shocking and tragic case, and one that will undoubtedly have a lasting psychological impact upon the poor victim.

“Excellent policing work has gone into tracking down two of the youths we believe to be responsible for this sickening attack, but it is imperative that we try and track down the third man as quickly as possible.

“If you believe you saw a man matching this description in the area at the time, or if you recognise this man, do not protect him, please contact police as soon as possible.”
