Police are hunting a sick and twisted man after he stole a mother’s purse from a pram in broad daylight.The theft took place on Hampton Road this morning in what was a cold and calculated theft.

The male, described in his late thirties to early forties, followed the Mum and daughter before waiting for the coast to be clear and swiping the bag. 

The pram had been left unattended while the Mum took her daughter inside a house to go to the toilet.

While the pram was only left unattended for a matter of seconds, that was all the unidentified man needed to snatch the purse before feeling the scene.

Anyone with any information or who may recognise the Male caught on camera is asked to call Merseyside Police on 101
