A STRANGER stole cash from a woman’s purse as she gave her a lift home.

The victim met a woman in Holmbush car park, Shoreham at about 11.45am on Friday, January 4.

She told her that she had been involved in an argument with her boyfriend and had no way of getting home.

So, the victim offered to drive her.

But, after dropping her off in Shoreham town centre, the victim realised that cash was missing from her purse.

The suspect was white, in her 30s, and 5ft 5in tall with blonde curly hair in a ponytail and a tattoo down her left arm.

Sussex Police have asked anyone who has seen this woman to report it online or call 101 quoting 1236 of 04/01.
