Separately, officers in south Belfast are investigating the mugging of a 35-year-old woman on Cadogan Street. They made off with her handbag and the babybag. Both bags were later recovered in an alley nearby but a purse had been removed.

Her daughter told Independent.ie that her mother was unaware that the male had approached her until she heard the words "give me your bag".

She said the young male put his hands on her bag and repeated the words again as he grabbed it from her. The woman offered no resistance and didn't suffer any injuries.

"She was a bit shaken but it all happened so fast that she didn't have time to register what had happened," her daughter said.

"She didn't have much in her bag as she'd just been shopping... just €3 in coins and an old mobile phone. She had two bank cards which my brother cancelled immediately.

"Her bag wouldn't have been much use to anyone."

Gardaí in Blackrock are investigating the incident and are appealing for witnesses.

Meanwhile, gardaí in Irishtown in Dublin are appealing for witnesses following the attempted robbery of the woman in her 70s in Sandymount.

The incident occurred at a bus stop on Newgrove Avenue shortly before 7pm on the same night.

"The woman was approached by a lone male (perhaps early 20s) who, following a struggle to get her handbag, made off with nothing," a garda spokesman said.

"The woman managed to hold onto her bag but sustained a number of injuries and was taken to St Vincents Hospital for treatment. Her injuries are not life threatening."

Gardaí do not believe at this stage the incidents are connected. It is understood that the description of the men do not match.
