A 24-year-old woman is fighting for her life after a moped crook punched her while stealing her phone and bag in Edgware.

Two males on a moped had driven up to her and tried to steal her bag. When she tried to fight them off she was hit and fell backwards. The pair then drove off towards Stag Lane.
No arrests have been made and the woman is in critical condition in hospital.
Det Sgt Richard Lewsley said: “This was a horrific attack, the victim had her bag on her shoulder when the males approached her. She resisted for some time until the pillion passenger punched her, causing her to fall backwards.
