One of them forcefully grabbed her handbag and took R3000.00 cash which was inside her purse and all three of them fled the scene with a blue BMW motor vehicle, with an unknown registration number.
The Police would like to warn members of the public to be vigilant at all times and should not carry large amounts of cash with them while busy with their shopping spree during this festive season.
