The two Good Samaritans rushed to the 21-year-old victim's aid when a man grabbed her brown Stefano bag while she sat using her mobile phone on a wall by the 99p Store outside Broad Street Mall, in Reading town centre, at 11.50am on Saturday, March 10.
But they failed to catch him and he made off with the bag containing a snake print purse, a cashpoint card and £50 in cash.
The thief is white, skinny, 5ft 11ins tall and wore a grey and blue hooded top with white stripes, dark tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.
