Shocking footage shows the moment a pensioner was mugged in broad-daylight and thrown to the ground.
CCTV captured a man sneaking up behind the woman, who is in her 80s, snatch her bag and hurl her into the road.
The woman suffered cuts to her face and knee and was rushed to hospital following the attack.
Now, police have released CCTV of the robbery in an attempt to track down the assailant, who escaped with a large quantity of cash.
Detectives believe that he could have tailed the woman for up to half-an-hour after spotting her withdrawing money from a cash machine in Finchley, north London, on March 1, 2016.
