A Derry woman has been left badly shaken after being robbed on the Peace Bridge by a man carrying a knife.

The woman was attacked at 8.25 p.m. on Tuesday night as she was walking along the Peace Bridge towards the Waterside.

A male approached her from behind and made off with her handbag.

The male then ran towards Foyle Street where it is believed he got into a taxi and was dropped off in Great James Street. He is believed to have been wearing a blue tracksuit top.

The female did not sustain any injuries, however she was left very badly shaken.
