Detectives are hunting a man who terrified an elderly woman in Bodmin and robbed her of cash.

The woman in her 80s was said to be in a state of shock after the robbery at her home in Dennison Road on Tuesday night.

Detective Constable Sarah Parkman said the elderly woman was robbed at around 10pm.

“The male banged repeatedly on the front door of a house and when the resident opened the door, he pushed his way in and stole £160, £40 of which was in loose change. The male then left and walked down the road towards the town centre.’’

The man was described as about 5’ 2, had a slightly chubby build and was wearing a grey or blue hooded top, black padded coat, black trousers and black boots.

Anyone who saw a male fitting the description in the area at around that time of the robbery should phone Bodmin CID on 101 and ask for DC Parkman quoting crime number BB/14/311.

    This lowlife needs to be caught and soon. Pity they can't give him the birch in fact the courts will not hand out anything resembling punishment anyway. For some reason they don't want to punish offenders just get them out of the court as soon as. Perhaps if this lady, who I hope will recover, was related to the magistrate there would be punishment.
