The incident happened in the Valleycourt Estate, just off the Dublin Road as the woman in her early 20s was walking home alone.

It's thought the man came up behind the victim and swiped the handbag from her as she made her way to her house around 2 a.m. The young woman received minor injuries in the ensuing struggle and was brought to Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe. She was released a short time later.
