DETECTIVES are still hunting for a sick thief who stole a mobile phone from a unconscious woman who had suffered a diabetic seizure.

Paula Eastwood, of Nicholson Road, Hexthorpe, was left battered and bruised after passing out and falling down in the carpark of Lidl supermarket in Sandford Road, Balby, just after 3pm on September 11.

The 48-year-old’s next memory was lying in a hospital bed 40 minutes later and discovering her iPhone 3GS had been taken from her handbag.

Anybody with information should call police on 101.
