He hunts to find a heartless thief who stole Mom’s purse while holding the baby close to him

The hunt continues to find a heartless thief who sneaked into a property and stole a mom’s purse while clutching her newborn baby.

Police today released pictures of a man he would like to talk to following the theft at an address in Leigh, Wigan.

Officers say the suspect sneaked into the property through the back door and took a women’s handbag, reports the Manchester Evening News.

The mother, who was holding her baby, challenged him and shouted for help but stole the bag and fled the scene.

Neither mother nor her child was injured during the theft on April 26 at around 3.30pm, but the woman is “shocked and upset,” says police.



Police ask for information to find this man

Greater Manchester police PC Swindlehurst said, “This was brazen behavior – being faced by a new mom, holding her young child in her arms and persisting with a burglary shows disrespect and morality.

“I’m afraid to think about what could have happened if the victim hadn’t had the courage to ask for help

“I would like to take this opportunity to ask anyone else with information that may be useful for us to get in touch.”
