Police are appealing for witnesses to a bag-snatching earlier this month after an elderly woman was dragged 10 metres when she refused to let go of her handbag.
The woman, 88, had been grocery shopping in Wantirna South about 4.20pm on October 22.
She was returning to her car when she realised she had forgotten to buy bread.
As she walked back towards a supermarket on the corner Stud Road and Somerset Street, a man tried to grab the woman’s bag and run.
Knox detectives say the woman refused to let go and fell to the ground.
She was dragged about 10 metres before letting go.
Police said the man, described as Caucasian and in his 20s, jumped into the passenger side of a waiting silver Ford Falcon.
Witnesses said the car was driven by a woman in her 30s with long black hair, who was wearing black sunglasses and a striped shirt.
The car had yellow and black NSW number plates and black gaffer tape around the front spoiler.
It crashed into another car in Boronia Road a short time later.
The elderly woman was treated for injuries to her knee and shoulder at Knox Private Hospital.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
