A WOMAN has been dragged from her car during a bag snatch in West Tamworth yesterday.
Police said the 35-year-old woman had just returned from the bank and was sitting in her car in the bank's carpark on the corner of Bridge and Crown streets at 3.30pm when she was approached by a man.
Police said the man leant in through the open car window and grabbed the woman's handbag, but didn't count on her hanging on.
She was dragged from her car and several metres along the ground before she let go of the bag.
The woman was treated at the scene by paramedics for grazing to her knees.

He was wearing a red t-shirt and had short curly hair.
