Police are looking to arrest a woman on a charge of theft after allegedly trying to steal cash from an elderly woman near an ATM, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Manchester police said that the incident unfolded on Monday afternoon, after the 86-year-old woman withdrew a large amount of money from a cash machine before heading into a supermarket in Altrincham.

While shopping, the victim was challenged by an unknown woman who grabbed her shopping cart and demanded the money she had withdrawn from the ATM.

The 86-year-old old woman then defended herself by repeatedly hitting the suspect over the head with a package of frozen bacon.

The suspect then retreated and ran away from the supermarket. So far, the suspect remains at large.
