Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an incident in the Monkston area of Milton Keynes.
At around 11.15pm on Sunday (27/12), a 19-year-old woman was walking along the underpass from Monkston Park to Monkston when two men walking towards her suddenly started running and shouting at her.
They shouted at her to hand over her bag and grabbed it. She kept hold of her bag and the men walked off laughing.
The woman was not injured and nothing was stolen.
The first offender is described as a black man, aged approximately 20-years-old and between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 10ins tall. He was wearing a black puffer jacket with the hood up, black joggers and black shoes.
