The youth, who was about 5ft 7in wearing a black T-shirt and blue jeans, pulled the necklace until it snapped before running off towards Barley Lane.

The incident occurred about 50 meters from Redbridge College, Little Heath.

The chain, taken from the eight months pregnant woman, is a rope style with yellow metal pendant with three metal strings at the bottom.
