Woman and toddler robbed in alley
A woman with a toddler in a pushchair has been robbed in an alleyway.

A 32-year-old woman was approached by a man in the alley between Crestwood Gardens and Talevera Way, Northampton, on Thursday morning.

The man, who said he was carrying a knife, told the woman to take her child out of the pushchair.

He then escaped with the three-wheeled green and black pushchair, a Gucci watch and a mobile phone. Police are appealing for witnesses.

The robber is described as white, in his 20s and wearing a grey hooded top and grey jogging bottoms.
