A 34 year old woman became the victim of an attempted robbery as she walked home from a bus stop.

The incident happened on Friday 24th February 2006 at 21.00 as the woman walked from the 94 bus stop on Bath Road near to Turnham Green Tube station towards Fishers Lane.

Three youths approached her as she walked along the path that crosses Chiswick Common.  One of the youths grabbed her bag and began shouting.

The victim fell to the ground but managed to get up again and run away screaming.
