Woman, 73, victim of bag snatching at Narellan

Police are appealing for information after a 73 year old woman had her bag snatched in an underground car park at Narellan yesterday.

The incident took place just before midday yesterday (Friday, March 20) and just moments after the woman parked her car.

When she went to move a trolley, a man came up behind the woman and grabbed her handbag from her hand.

The bag contained credit cards, a small amount of cash and a mobile phone.

The bag snatcher ran to a white coloured sedan which was waiting nearby, and which drove off at high speed.

The woman suffered chest pains as a result of the incident and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Police were notified and commenced an investigation.

Officers from Camden Police Area Command have canvassed the area; however, haven’t been able to identify the man involved.

Investigators have released a description of a man they believe could assist with their inquiries.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged 18 to 25, 175cm-180cm tall, with a medium build.

At the time he was wearing a light-grey hoodie, white jeans, white joggers and a grey scarf wrapped around his head.


A man has been charged with murder as investigations continue into the death of an 18 year old male following a brawl outside a home in Ingleburn last year.

The arrest was made yesterday by Campbelltown detectives from Strike Force Faischi.

The 18 year old man charged, who was aged 17 at the time of the incident, has been refused bail and will appear in Parramatta Children’s Court today (Saturday, March 21).

Last Wednesday a 27-year-old woman was arrested and charged with concealing a serious indicatable offence and being an accessory after the fact to murder.

It all stems from a brawl involving a large group of people last May.

Police say the brawl is believed to have begun during a party at a home on Chester Road, before it spilled onto the street.

An 18-year-old man was located on the roadway with serious head injuries.

He was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics, who conveyed him to Liverpool Hospital, where he later died.
