An elderly woman has had her hip broken when a man snatched her handbag, pushing her to the ground.
The 74-year-old woman was walking to her car about 5.30pm at the Mirrabooka Shopping Centre when the offender approached her from behind grabbing her handbag and shoving her.
The woman was pushed to the ground with such force the shopping trolley tipped over and she fractured her hip.
She was taken to Joondalup Health Campus for surgery.
The offender fled in a white Hyundai hatchback or similar car.
