Pregnant woman miscarried after being kicked in stomach while on phone to mum in robbery

A PREGNANT woman miscarried after being kicked in the stomach by a sick thief.

The unnamed woman was chatting to her mum in Wanstead, east London back in July when a bike-riding thug sped past her, kicking her in the stomach and swiping her iPhone.

The twisted mugging took place on Wednesday, July 29 at a bus stop in Cambridge Park.

The mugger is described as mixed race, around 30-years-old and of stocky build with tattoos covering his left arm.

The Metropolitain Police have released an e-fit of the suspect.

DC James Pepperall added: "I know that some time has passed since this incident but I would ask anyone who witnessed this or saw the man on the bike after robbery took place to get in touch."
