An ELDERLY woman was in hospital yesterday after a thief stole her Bible as she walked home from church.
The 77-year-old was walking with the aid of a frame in Haringey, London, when a man grabbed her bag containing the Bible, pulling her to the ground.
He ran off while the pensioner was left calling out for help.
Detective Inspector Jason Turkington said: “This was a depraved attack on a clearly vulnerable member of the community.”
The woman was taken to hospital with back pain after the robbery on Tuesday.
